Tumi Morake is heading out on tour for her one-woman comedy show called, Tumi or Not Tumi!
The tour has kicked off on 28 January in Emnotweni Casino, Nelspruit and sets to hit all major cities in South Africa.
The show follows her journey as she tries to find herself in the schizophrenia of motherhood, wifehood and South African-hood amidst being the Queen of Comedy.
Tumi Morake made history in 2016 by being the first female to be crowned Comic of the Year at the 6th annual Savannah Comic’s Choice Awards and she’s not ready to give up that crown just yet.
“After 10 years in the industry, it’s crazy that I have never done a South African tour. Well, the time has finally arrived. The comedy industry in this country has grown so much in terms of offerings and demand. South Africans seem to have an insatiable appetite for it and hopefully I can whet their tastebuds with this new show,” says Tumi in a statement.
The first wave of music from the album was released as an EP earlier this month and it shot to number one on the Billboard Albums chart.
Tickets for the tour are available at Computicket and at the respective venue box offices.
