Last One Laughing South Africa made a splash at its premier event, with the cast, including the dynamic duo Lasizwe and Thando Thabethe, showing off some serious chemistry. The lively gathering saw Mzansi celebs and guests rocking a variety of styles and colours.

According to The Citizen, this Prime Video Original comedy series, hosted by the world-renowned comedian, Trevor Noah, brought together 10 top-notch South African comedians for a battle of wits and laughs. The premiere on Monday, 12 February, marked a milestone for Prime Video’s first South Africa Original.


Director Andrew Wessels, with over three decades of industry experience, shared his gratitude for being part of this massive production. Chatting with The Citizen, Wessels expressed his joy of working with a larger team and the challenges that come with such grand productions.

“It’s funny for me because I really love working with teams. And when you have a smaller production, you have less of a team. And it was actually wonderful working with a big team like this one.

“I come from a background of doing very small productions that became very successful. I did shows like The Fat Joe Show, Late Night with Loyiso Gola, and many others and tend not to do the bigger productions because it’s a hell of a thing to take on. It’s such an investment of time because I do a lot of different things. I lecture, I do animations, I edit, etc.”


Despite Trevor Noah and Nomzamo Mbatha missing from the premiere due to prior commitments in the USA, the event MC, Sipho Alphi, made sure the show went on. A correspondent from The Citizen caught up with cast members like Lasizwe, who minced no words in describing his excitement from interacting with Thando Thabethe on the show, and even said “she and I were meant to be besties.”

Lasizwe went on to describe the experience on the show as iconic, and mentioned how challenging it was for him to keep a straight face surrounded by comedic legends like Celeste Ntuli and Tumi Morake.

As the laughter-filled competition unfolds on Prime Video, viewers can look forward to a display of comedic prowess and unexpected connections that define the essence of Last One Laughing South Africa.
