It’s that time of the year when everyone is experiencing a burn-out and just about had enough! But 2018 is not over yet so you’ll need to soldier on. They say comedy is the best medicine and after watching some comedy specials over the past few days, we think we know why because now we feel much more refreshed. Check out five specials we think you should definitely watch.

Son Of Patricia

Trevor’s much-anticipated special is finally out and we thoroughly enjoyed watching it. In Son Of Patricia, the comedian touched on topics such as race, modern-day rap music, politics and recalled an interesting trip to Bali. Noah has the ability to turn any story into a manifest of laughter – that’s the beauty of comedy. This is a classic Trevor Noah show and if you’re a fan of his previous work then you’ll love this one.

All Star Comedy Jam

The Original Kings of Comedy and Shaquille O’Neal presents this Stand-Up Special with some of the industry’s most talented and sought after comedians. This is an old school classic.

Marlon Wyans: Woke ish

This left us dead on the floor with laughter. Marlon Wyans is an idiot, in a good way, if that makes any sense. His impersonations, animations are enough to make anyone with no of sense of humour burst with laughter. He jokes about politics, race, raising kids and much more.

Donald Glover: Weirdo

What can’t Donald Glover do? He sings, raps, acts, directs and is also a damn good comedian. Here he brings down the house in his hysterical stand-up special.

Roast Of Somizi

This is not necessarily a special but a very special roast in its own right. This is the biggest roast we’ve had in SA this year and is guaranteed to leave you in stitches. Prior to the show we chatted to Somizi and the comedian made it clear that he wasn’t nervous because there’s nothing about him out there that he hasn’t owned. The show still ended up as an amazing and funny watch.
