Fresh from a sell-out Edinburgh Fringe run, Tadiwa Mahlunge is set to bring his debut stand-up show to Soho.
The 25-year-old will be performing his show, Inhibition Exhibition, at Soho Theatre, in Dean Street, Soho, from February 1 to 3.
The emerging comedian is questioning why he so yearningly needs to be viewed as being successful.
Describing himself as having a “diversity hire face,” Mr Mahlunge takes audiences on a journey from his upbringing as “the only black person in Wales,” to working his corporate London day job – which he says has the capacity to corrupt his moral compass.
Mr Mahlunge’s childhood, which included having to flee political persecution from Robert Mugabe’s brutal regime in Zimbabwe at the age of seven and relocate to Wales, has strongly shaped him and his family.
He says that consequences of not living up to his potential have been rigidly enforced by his family from an early age – “failure is a luxury good”.
Mr Mahlunge’s quiet approach speaks volumes, and his quick-witted and observational humour make him a stand-out stand-up as he shares in-depth insights that come from his own experiences.
He said: “To be honest, I can’t put into words how excited I am for these gigs.
“I’ve spent the last few months working on new jokes for the show to make it even more fun to do. I hope you enjoy!”
