The Problem Child Returns to theatre.

After a successful run at Nelson Mandela Theatre on the Square, Cape Town’s Artscape Theatre, and Protea Hotel, Gqeberha, Loyiso is bringing back a new and improved version of his show, Problem Child

The show is a brilliantly told collection of personal stories and ideas about this country of ours through the lens of someone who is accepted everywhere and fits in nowhere. Blending in has allowed him to see and thoroughly mock all kinds of Sefrikans using his witty and devilish humour. 

He’s double jabbed, medicated and nobody’s safe (not even himself).

Loyiso is the first South Africa Correspondent for The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, a position he quickly nabbed after a relatively short career in entertainment. Since starting as a standup in 2012, Loyiso quickly rose in the industry to become a writer and performer on the two-time Emmy Nominated Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola, the hit sketch show The Bantu Hour with Kagiso Lediga and Bra Hugh Masekela. 

Loyiso also stars alongside Pearl Thusi in Netflix’s first African original series, Queen Sono. 

Also on Netflix is his half-hour standup special, Long Way From My Village. 

He has toured with Trevor Noah in his Nationwild tour, performed at Switzerland’s Montreux Comedy Festival a couple of times and hosted their first live broadcast comedy extravaganza alongside Kagiso Lediga. 

His debut one man show, Born Free-ish, is available on Showmax. 

Loyiso is also an international event host and was the master of ceremonies at 2018 Global Goals convention (New York) for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. 

All covid-19 protocols observed.
