South Africa

Acts like a lady. Thinks like a man.

Angel is a Capetonian comedian, born in Durban and raised in Plett, Jozi, Somerset West and her grand-mother's house.

With the real name, Angel, she didn't have the career luxury of becoming a doctor or lawyer and her options were limited to being a stripper or stand-up comedian. After a few test runs in front of her own mirror she chose comedy as it made the neighbours boo less violently.

Angel's one woman show, Yes Really Angel, is directed by Nik Rabinowitz and produced by Siv Ngesi. It returned from a sold out 2015 run at the National Arts Festival to much critical acclaim - She will be debuting at the Cape Town Fringe in Sept-Oct 2015.

Angel has been nominated for a 2015 Mbokodo Award in Comedy. Recognising South African women who are changing the game in their fields.

Angel also writes for the multi award winning ( including 2015 SAFTA for Best TV Comedy) satire comedy show, ZA news.

Since 2012 she has had her own radio show every Friday 1-3 pm on 2oceansvibe radio where she chats to other comedians and showcases her industry.

She performs regularly as a comedian and MC for corporate events, functions and parties - and yes she has even done Barmitvahs.

(To make extra cash she also helps brands with copy-writing and Social Media strategies, so hit her up if you're looking for funny - cos she's looking for money.)

Angel is enjoying continuing success performing stand-up around South Africa - but wont object, however, if you'd still like to slip R100 notes into her belt strap.
