AFRICAN INDIAN @ The Junction

South African stand-up comedian Masood Boomgaard is heading to the Middle East! The Durban funny man, who recently completed a tour of Australia, will be hitting the stage at The Junction Dubai theatre on 21 October for two shows
only. Boomgaard who is regarded one of the brightest stars in South African comedy will show off his unique and witty take on a range of topics from technology and sports to relationships, celebrities, parenting and everything
else in between.
The show will explore the notions of the so called third and first worlds, making light of the latter and its trivial inconveniences, ranging from poor Wifi Signal to gluten, while also exploring misconceptions of the so-called third world. It is a comic exploration from the perspective of someone who has lived in both the developed and developing world and offers hilarious predictions of what we can expect from technology and human behaviour in the years to come.
Masood also uses the show as an opportunity to talk about his childhood growing up in the eighties and nineties and reminisces about the “good old days” of VHS cassettes, Nintendo cartridges and dial up internet.
“African Indian” has something for everyone and officers a combination of rapid fire one liners and more elaborate story-styled jokes. Boomgaard is celebrating his tenth year in comedy this year.
“It’s a milestone for me and I plan to give Dubai the very best of me. I’m going to make sure these shows are as memorable for the audience as they’re going to be for me.”

Two shows on Saturday 21st October

The year is 2017 and the world holds its breath.

Rome is in the throes of a populist revolution. The ambitious and charismatic Julius Caesar has just defeated Pompey Magnus after a bitter political campaign. As Caesar moves to enhance his position and influence, the people clamor to make him King. Absolute power now lies within his grasp.

But, the Senators of Rome are afraid. Whilst they do fear the tyrant this Caesar could become, how far are they willing to go?

Security gives way to conspiracy as murderous shadowy forces converge and surround Caesar. Only one final piece of the plot remains – convincing Marcus Brutus, the most honorable man in Rome, to rise against his closest friend.
