Loyiso Gola: ‘The funniest word? Nincompoop makes me laugh every time’ | Stage


The funniest standup I’ve ever seen …

It has to be Ross Noble. I saw him at the Cape Town comedy festival in 2002. I was in high school. His improvising was so good it made me never want to try.

The funniest person I know …

My good friend, movie director Kagiso Lediga. His movies such as Catching Feelings are funny, too.

The funniest heckle I’ve ever had …

An audience member once said: “Hey, we matched on Tinder and you never replied to my messages.” I froze because I recognised her. I was stumped.

The funniest meal I’ve ever eaten …

I am vegan and the other day I ate fake tuna. It was disgusting.

The funniest hairstyle I’ve ever had …

White barbers generally don’t know how to cut black people’s hair. So when I am touring and I can’t find a black barber, I go to a white barber and my hair looks funny.

The funniest thing that shouldn’t be funny …

The fact that we are getting used to Donald Trump being president is funny but shouldn’t be.

The funniest word …

“Nincompoop” makes me laugh every time. I say it a lot but have no idea how to spell it without predictive text.

The funniest joke I’ve ever heard …

Chris Rock: “If you earn minimum wage, you know what your boss is telling you? If I could pay you less, I would; it’s just that it’s against the law.”

Loyiso Gola: Unlearning, is at Downstairs, Soho Theatre, W1, Thu to 26 May
