Riaad Moosa to host Keeping You in Stitches

As part of the University of Cape Town Medical School's Centenary celebrations, Rondebosch Medical Centre will present a stand-up comedy show called 'Keeping You in Stitches', at the Cape Town International Convention Centre on Saturday, 17 November at 8pm.

The show will be hosted by doctor-turned-comedian, Riaad Moosa and includes SA's premier ventriloquist, Conrad Koch (eTV Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola), Kurt Schoonraad (Skeem, Going nowhere Slowly), Stuart Taylor (Money's too tight to Mention, Learner Husband) and upcoming comedy stars in Cape Town.

Riaad Moosa is one of South Africa's most popular, award-winning and innovative comedians and also happens to be a qualified medical doctor, graduating from UCT Medical School in 2001.

Recently, he has flexed his comedic and dramatic acting muscles, playing the lead role in the acclaimed South African movie 'Material' opposite comedians Joey Rasdien and Nik Rabinowitz.

Previous sold-out one-man shows include Strictly Halaal and Riaad Moosa For The Baracka, and 'Three Wise Men and Three Wiser Men', the hit comedy shows created by David Kramer.

Stuart Taylor is also part of the line-up. He became known to South Africans as the presenter of SABC 3's hit travel show, 'Going Nowhere Slowly'. But he swopped life in front of the camera for stand-up comedy in SA and abroad at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Berlin International Comedy Festival, the New Zealand International Comedy Festival and his sold-out one man comedy theatre productions throughout South Africa.

Tickets range from R100 to R250 at Computicket, with discounted tickets available for students on presentation of a valid student card.
