Loyiso Gola

With a stack of awards, accolades and achievements to his name, Loyiso Gola is a comedic force not to be taken lightly. He is best known as the host, co-producer and writer of the twice Emmy nominated satirical news show, Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola. He burst onto the scene at the age of 17, winning the Sprite Soul Comedy competition. Since then his work in TV, radio, film and live performances have earned him the title of one of South Africa's best comedians. Having just released his third Comedy DVD State of the Nation in South Africa, Loyiso’s career has seen him travel the world – performing at London’s Soho Theatre, appearing in Britain's hugely popular panel show Mock The Week, several BBC radio shows and taking his show Dude, Where’s My Lion to the infamous Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

His debut U.S. comedy special, Loyiso Gola Live in New York was released by Vimeo Originals in November 2016, launching at the prestigious New York Comedy Festival.
