Riaad Moosa comedy show in Cape Town

Dr. Riaad Moosa prescribes a heavy dose of laughter and giggles


Keeping You in Stitches, the medically-approved comedy show featuring Dr. Riaad Moosa, is scheduled to operate at the Cape Town Convention Centre (CTICC) on Saturday, 17 November 2012. As part of the University of Cape Town (UCT) Medical School's Centenary celebrations, The Rondebosch Medical Centre and Comedy Central present two performances of this side-splitting stand-up show

Hosted by the doctor-turned-comedian Riaad Moosa, the show’s line-up includes one of South Africa’s premiere ventriloquists, Conrad Koch, stalwarts Kurt Schoonraad and Stuart Taylor as well as some of the Mother City’s hottest up-and-coming comedy stars.

The Faculty of Health Sciences at UCT celebrated their 100th birthday in June, and in celebration they’ve joined forces with this hilarious comedic team to raise funds to expand their community-based education activities in family medicine. With the much needed fincancing the university hopes to both encourage students to practice medicine in rural areas (by equipping them with the appropriate language skills) and to widen the faculty’s areas of research for better service delivery.
