Deep Fried Man

Deep Fried Man is a musical comedian, satirist and writer with his own quirky, original and uniquely South African style. He has performed at some of South Africa’s biggest comedy shows, including Bafunny Bafunny, Blacks Only, The Heavyweight Comedy Jam, Kings and Queens of Comedy and Comedy Central Presents Live At Parkers. He is currently a permanent cast member on the Emmy-nominated, SAFTA winning TV series Late Nite News With Loyiso Gola.


He has won a Comics Choice award and been nominated for 4 more, and has also won a Standard Bank Ovation Award, as well as 2010 The Parker’s Comedy Showdown. He has featured on lists such as The Mail & Guardian’s 200 Young South Africans and GQ’s 35 Cool Guys Under 35. He has interviewed Julius Malema for MTV, accidentally got Helen Zille trending worldwide on Twitter and he swears he once kissed Khanyi Mbau, with tongue. The highlight of his career, though, is still playing Ice, Ice, Baby to Vanilla Ice himself. Ask YouTube if you don’t believe him.


“Fantastic… Creative improv, great rapport with audience, jumps genres all the time… I love his sense of humour. Wacky and unique”. – Zapiro
