Eugene Khoza fumes about criticised Zuma jokes

Comedian Eugene Khoza is known for his no holds barred approach when it comes to politics and while that has landed him criticism from Zuma supporters he remains unapologetic about it.


The controversy-prone Zuma is often fuel for his stand-up routine and now, after hosting sold out shows in March in Johannesburg and Pertoria in May, Khoza is back with his third, one man show, ‘Pardon Me’.

Khoza has been criticised by Zuma supporters for his political jokes.

“Comedians are always blamed for trashing the president, but do the critics ever send the president an SMS to say, ‘You are trashing yourself’?” he says.

“People must get it through their thick heads that we are not going to stop talking about politics. You must not think that your guy with a big head is the most important guy in the world. He is not the party; he just happens to be at the helm of the f**king sh*t that is going on there,” he tells City Press.

“What must we talk about? I’m so frustrated. People vote every five years for people to take care of their children’s future and they complain about me, a citizen like them. Oust him, not me.”

“I am not anti anyone, but we can’t have planes landing in key national security points and our leader says nothing.” He adds.

‘Pardon Me’ is on at the Brooklyn Theatre in Pretoria on November 2 and at The Lyric theatre in Joburg on November 8 and 9.
