AWARD WINNING ACTOR KICKS OF ONE MAN COMEDY SHOW 

STAGE TIME is a Stand-up comedy, a solo project written and performed by Phillip M Dikotla,

“The concept of STAGE TIME was inspired by the term “Stage Time” as used in the standup

comedy community, normally associated with the process of a comedian’s growth that’s

focussed on trying new ideas, finding one’s creative voice, practice, and taking risks,”

Dikotla elaborates further, “Also, it’s just about a guy telling stories and jokes in

a big random performance space, leading up to a big experimental comedy special. It’s a

breath of fresh air for any comedy fanatic.”

A live & original one-man stand-up comedy show like no other, STAGE TIME is just like

seating with friends and family, sharing your favorite collection of viral video content, with

each clip coming with its own memories of characters, and lived experiences. Throughkotlaperformance, comedic and artistic genius, this highly relatable social experience is brought

to the stage live, in a mix medium presentation of viral video clips and Phillip Dikotla’s display of conversational,

outrageous, self-depreciative, twisted, and hilarious mind-bending humour.

Dikotla is a comedian and a multi-award winning theatre actor, writer, and director. He

holds the Olive Schreiner Award for Drama; Fleur du Cap Award for best performance in a

one man show; Standard Ovation Award; Arts and Culture trust impact Award for theatre;

Zabalaza Festival Best production; Cape Town Fringe Fresh Festival Award; and the

Naledi Award for Best Community Theatre Production. His brand of comedy is fresh, wokeish

and intellectual-like. In his everyday-everyman-like demeanour he presents a sidesplitting

view on our everyday experiences and conversations. His narrative, edgy, self-depreciative

humour, brilliant delivery, and performance of his story-like jokes, boldly

favours authenticity over likability, and sets him apart from an array of rising comedians in

South Africa.

Tickets for STAGETIME are available at R100 at phillipdikotla.com and R150 at the door.
