Kau will reprise his role as the MC.  David Kau needs little introduction and his name is synonymous with many firsts. At the current age of 32, this Kroonstad-born comic began his career as the first black stand-up comedian in the 1998 Smirnoff Comedy Festival in Cape Town – the only black person on stage out of 44 comics. Of his material Kau says: “It isn’t all influenced by politics – instead it’s always about what’s current.”

Joining David Kau and his string of the country’s funniest Black comedians is International comedian, Ruben Paul.

 Ruben Paul is one of the most unique and versatile comedians working today. His irrepressible energy, quick wit, and vivid storytelling take audiences on a hilarious ride from beginning to end. Paul talks honestly about his life and has insightful observations that bring audiences together no matter their age, race, creed, or color.

Paul was born and raised in Carson, California, which is one of the most diverse cities in the Los Angeles area. “I grew up in an all black neighborhood, went to an all Mexican high school, went to an all white church, and shopped at a lot of Asian stores,” he quips. Paul’s upbringing was the foundation for his universal appeal. His undeniable charisma and spontaneity make him a crowd favorite everywhere he goes.

He was chosen as one of the Best of the Fest comics at HBO’s prestigious The Comedy Festival in Aspen, Colorado, and has toured extensively with Jamie Foxx, George Lopez, Cedric the Entertainer, and has shared the stage with the late great music legend, Barry White.
