Roni Modimola - Comedian and MC - Johannesburg
Roni Modimola who has been involved with stand-up comedy since the late 90s has matured a style of comedy that knows no boundaries, he uses his quiet charm, philosophical views, silly word-plays and good old-fashioned gags to win over any type of comedy crowd. Known for his dry but witty comedy style, Roni Modimola has been one of South Africa’s favourite comics for years. He first got introduced to the nation through a character he played on SABC 1’s widely popular comedy sketch show the Pure Monate Show.
In an industry where most comics use storytelling as a way to communicate a joke, Roni Modimola does not shy away from bringing into his act something that has nothing to do with anything and will still keep the audience glued to his set because of his unique yet powerful delivery. He designs his comedy set in such a way that it would bring the house down from a comedy club in Soweto, to a corporate function in Cape Town and still have the same power to work in a show in London, Australia or New York.
