Comedians collect content for their shows through the lives they live, their experiences good and bad form some of the most rip roaring laughter we’ve ever experienced. It’s always usually relatable content and we tend to walk away from comedy sets understanding that ultimately we’re all human. 


With the current high rate of divorce in South Africa and as time has passed, we have become a more accustomed generation and the word ‘DIVORCE’ no longer holds a negative/shameful connotation as it did previously, now multi-nominated South African comedian, writer and actor, Trevor Gumbi, who recently announced his own separation after 11 years of marriage, wants to talk openly about this previously ‘taboo’ subject. 


His new one man show titled ‘Divorce Tour’ brought to you by Comedy Central, is the modern day love story which tells the tale of a 37 year old recovering addict and father, who, in a short space of time, has battled drug addiction, found love, created life, filed for bankruptcy, won it all and lost it all before the age of 35. A story not many people know, but can relate to. 


The outspoken and often controversial comedian will tap into various gritty aspects of this new chapter of his life, including some socially uncomfortable topics such as ‘what is left of life?’, ‘What is there still to be done?’, ‘Are there any experiences still to be had?’ and finding his feet as a bachelor after 11 years of marriage and 17 years overall of dating the same woman.


“I’ve always been honest with my material, speaking my truth and about situations that have contributed to me being me. This is no different, I feel now is the right time for me to tell this story and I want to tell it on my own terms.” says Trevor


The first leg of the ‘Divorce Tour’ will take place on Saturday, 4 November 2017 at The Globe, Silverstar Casino, Johannesburg, with supporting act, Ebenhaezer Dibakwane. 

Tickets range between R185 – R200 and can be purchased from Computicket
