Darren Maule is hosting a free virtual comedy show to raise funds for the KZN Emergency Relief Drive – This is how to get involved.


Durban, South Africa (22 July 2021) – A tweet, a reply and a free virtual comedy show to raise much-needed funds for the communities in KZN who were affected by the violence and looting was born. 

“I responded to a tweet by Leah Solomon, known to her followers as Dame Jewdy Mensh, for assistance in producing a virtual comedy show, and the movement was started,” says Jon Gericke, radio presenter and owner of Pint Size Media.

The event, which was formulated by Solomon and put together in just two weeks, will take place on Friday 30 July. Twelve comedians will pool their collective wits and raise funds for those affected by the looting in KwaZulu-Natal. 

Hosted by Darren Maule, the free, online comedy show brings together some of South Africa’s best comedians to raise money for the KZN Emergency Relief Drive. In partnership with the Lions Club KZN, the drive is committed to getting impacted areas back on their feet by distributing food parcels and necessities. The hope is to raise R600,000 to go towards the relief efforts.

“While the event is free to watch, we ask for viewers to make a donation towards the fund,” says Gericke.

The event can be viewed on the following channels:
