About the Event

Australia’s uprising African stand-up comedian with a unique laugh and delivery style. Afonso Caxala is a two-time winner of P & O Comedy Cruise Gala with full-house standing ovations, and has sold out shows in Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Sydney Fringe. Now he's set for his first Australian tour.

After travelling seven days and seven nights taking all sorts of transport to escape his war-torn country, Angola, he is now a frequent Australia comedian, with hilarious and mind-blowing stories you can hear in many comedy clubs across Australia.

Here is what some of the top Aussie comedians have said about Afonso and his show MAMAMIAhahaha:

Mick Meredith: “You are certainly one of the best African comedians in town.”

Rebecca Unamuno: “You will be one of the best Australian comedians soon. The Australian audience loves your stories, mate.”

Reviews don’t do him justice. Make sure you keep an eye on Afonso’s show dates – you must come and watch him live on the stage for yourself. You will not regret it.
