Hot on the heels of his 2021 Netflix hour special, ‘Unlearning’, released earlier this year to much critical acclaim – Double Emmy Award nominated comedian Loyiso Gola has announced a slew of Northern tour dates.

‘Pop Culture’ sees Loyiso take you on a hilarious journey through the many pop culture moments that have shaped all of our lives. Pop, as a culture, that is deemed somehow inclusive. Michael Jackson’s music was a constant in his house and suddenly he is being told to cancel the King Of Pop from his iTunes playlist by friends and family! He discusses how pop has an ability to oversimplify very complicated ideas, sometimes to the detriment of society. As a result of growing up in an unequal post-apartheid South Africa Notorious BIG was obviously way more important to him than The Beatles!
