Tats Nkonzo is the rising comedian blazing comedy clubs all over Johannesburg. Firing up his audience with his unique brand of observational humour, Tats is set to break out and establish himself as a comic force to be reckoned with.

With his arsenal of humour, intellect and a guitar, Tats brings a flavour to stand up comedy that is unrivalled. A finalist in the first season of this hit reality show for stand up comics, Tats Nkonzo left a lasting impression on judges and producers alike. Such was the impact that, even after elimination (Top 8), he was requested to prepare material as a guest performer in the final round of the competition.

Tats has opened for Nik Rabinowitz in Nik’s sold out, “You Can’t Be Seriou”, one man show. He is due to open for Nik again in the Johannesburg run in July 2011. Tats opened for Loyiso Gola at the Teatro at Monte Casino for Loyiso’s one man show, Life and Times. It was a killer exhibition of his ability to hold and entertain packed out audiences in the 1800 seat venue.

From Gold Reef City to Emperor’s Palace, Tats Nkonzo has shared stages with comedy giants like Eddie Eckstein, Mel Miller, Nik Rabinowitz, Chris Forrest, Darren Maule and David Kau among others. An instant favorite on the Cape Town comedy scene after performing with the likes of David Newton, Dave levinsohn and Kurt Schoonraad, his speedy rise from amateur to professional comedian is a sure sign of greater things to come.

After three years of steady, but progressive performances on stage, Tats performed his debut one man show, Can't Tats This, in his hometown of East London. Tats received the The BlackBerry Breakthrough Act Award at the 2nd Annual South African Comics Choice Awards, in 2012. In the same year he took over from Rob van Vuuren and Anele Mdoda as sole host of SA's Got Talent. Tats was also the seventh host of the Comedy Central series Comedy Central Presents... Live at Parker's, in 2012. In 2014 he was one of the team captains of the e.tv game show I Love South Africa.

Based on the content of Nkonzo's material on stage, CNN's African Voices conducted a profile on him (and Nik Rabinowitz) where the two had an opportunity to speak about South Africa and how stand-up comedy fits in the bigger picture of nation building. With a musical gift that complements his comic performance, Tats Nkonzo gives audiences far more than they expect. As a top 24 finalist in the third installment of the series, it is clear when Tats Nkonzo enters the stage that he is a multi faceted entertainer.

Tats Nkonzo is the rising comedian blazing comedy clubs all over Johannesburg.

Firing up his audience with his unique brand of observational humour, Tats is set to break out and establish himself as a comic force to be reckoned with.



GRIFF has wanted to be a comedian since he was three years old where his mother use to set up the seniors in The Convalescent Homes where she worked, in an audience typesetting and let her son make sleeping and comatose old people laugh. So after working the Geriatric Circuit for a couple of summers his destiny was settled. Since then, that little funny boy with the faith of a PLANET has made a name for himself as one of the leading comedians and On-Air Personalities in the Country by headlining across North America (including Canada), New Zealand, The U.K. and Africa.


With his quick wit and unsurpassed knowledge for sports news, “GRIFF” took sports took sports to the ‘next level’ with his comedic twist on athletes and their stories. In 1999 he received Georgia’s Sportcaster of the Year Award and in 2004 “Street Skillz”, a program he provided the color commentary for was nominated for an EMMY.


Ultimately, GRIFF is a Comedian, an On-Air Personality, an Author, an Actor, a Motivational Speaker, a Daddy, an EMMY nominated Sportscaster and a man who puts Jesus Christ ahead of all men all wrapped into one.
