The business of making people laugh is no joke, but local funny man Bafana Ribcracker Letsatsi would like to be hilarious in front of the revelers when he stages the Cracker Night Comedy Show on February 13, 2014 at Cresta President Hotel.

The organizers Major Moves Comedy released a press statement on Tuesday afternoon that the acclaimed stand up comedian will alongside his top comedian friends and local upcoming comics attempt to crack the ribs of revelers. The theme for the Cracker Night is Food, Love and Laughter and will be headlined by female comics Rekunde, Mosetsana and newcomer KB.

Major Moves Comedy Events Coordinator Gaolathe Kediemetse said they are delighted to stage yet another show with the local comedian headlining it. “Having produced the monthly comedy events at Cresta President Hotel featuring international guests and also taking comedians to perform in South Africa alongside top comic acts, it was only natural to show growth through having more locals headline their own shows as Mawee did when he recorded his DVD,” he said.

Upcoming comedienne KB will debut her act in Gaborone. Prior to her debut in Gaborone, KB will be given workshops by top Botswana comedian and the host of the show Ribcracker.

The man of the night, Ribcracker, who is also the Comedy for the Nation of Botswana (COFONABO) Chairman is expected to leave the revelers in stitches. Having shared the stage with Top South African comics such as Trevor Noah, Barry Hilton, Mashabela Galane, Roni Modimola, Sifiso Nene, one can say he has learned the tricks of top comics.

On the night, newcomer Stix of Maun will be given a chance to showcase his clean, high energy, fun and clever comedy. Also on the roster is Molepolole based Jerusalema, who is a versatile comedian on stage with a good mixture of quick wit, topical and observational humor. The show also features veteran Jakes, Moshi, Phenyo The Master and Peter the white man from Zimbabwe.

Ribcracker will also impart his knowledge to upcoming comediennes. “There is still a huge gap left for female comics to fill in Botswana. We hope the introduction of Rekunde and Mosetsana will encourage more talented female comediennes to come up and showcase their skills.  Major Moves Comedy and COFONABO are always ready to help and develop talent, and also give a platform to all upcoming comedians so we build a vibrant industry”, said Ribcracker.
