They say life begins at 40 …

Riaad Moosa brings his hilarious new show, Life Begins, to Silverstar.

Riaad Moosa is inviting the audience to his brand new one-man show, Life Begins, to join in figuring out whether life really does begin at 40. The show takes place at The Globe at Silverstar Casino on 11 March.

“Even though I am turning 40 this year, in many ways I feel like I’m still crawling and I’m looking back at my journey from being an aspirational doctor, coming from a relatively conservative Muslim background, where both my parents were doctors, and how I actually journeyed to becoming a stand-up comedian,” said Riaad.

As an award-winning comedian, actor, writer and presenter, Riaad is one of South Africa’s most popular and acclaimed funny men and he happens to be a qualified medical doctor too. Known as the “Comedy Doctor”, he certainly seems to have the remedy for the nation’s ills – a healthy dose of laughter, straight up – and hold the aspirin!

Life Begins is a snapshot of the life of Riaad Moosa – being a father of three kids, a husband, comedian and actor, with all the current cultural and political issues thrown in.

“The show is very philosophical and existential. It involves the normal issues of getting older while at the same time experiencing, at a maturity where I’m supposed to be wise, a world that is completely turned on its head – with Trump, with Brexit; in South Africa, the State Capture, Fees Must Fall, Doom Prophet. And it’s about how I negotiate all these things happening around me while trying to maintain a positive attitude. Through my comedic lens, I hope to put a different spin on that and hopefully I can enter my next 40 years with renewed vigour and excitement,” he added.

Tickets cost from R150 and are available at Computicket online and various outlet stores. The show starts at 8pm.
