Asides being a voice-over artist and MC, Carol Ofori has added comedienne to her name. The public figure is currently prepping to make her comedic debut at Rory Petzer’s first official one-man-show at The Barnyard, Suncoast as an opening act on October 14, where Carvin Goldstone will host the show.
The show will offer a unique glimpse into the life of the East Coast Radio (ECR) presenter as she shares tales of moving cities with her two young children and navigating the country.
“I’m nervous as hell, but excited for my comedic debut! I’ve always secretly wanted to give comedy a try and I feel so honored that Rory has allowed me to come shine with him on one of the biggest days in his comedy career,” Carol Ofori said.
Rory, the 2023 Savanna Comics Choice Comedy Award winner, said he was excited to give Carol a platform to pursue her dream.
“When I was thinking about an opening act, I remembered Carol once said she wanted to ‘try comedy sometime’, so I gave her no choice! I’m so excited for this show! And, as for Carvin as our host, it was a no-brainer for me. I’ve learnt so much from him over the years and I love the guy!” he said.
Similar to Carol Ofori, Rory is nervous to be performing his first ever one-man show.
“I love the people of Durban so much and I’ve been doing comedy here for about nine years, so it was definitely about time and The Barnyard at Suncoast is my favorite venue in KZN, so it all just fell into place.”
