The nominations comes following thousands of votes, across hundreds of registered comedians. Comedians, media and industry were the first to hear the names called out at a special press lunch held on Wednesday, 12 July 2017 at Katzy’s in Rosebank, South Africa.
Comedians voted for their fellow comedians, determining who will be nominated and go on to receive a Waldo (the Savanna CCA’s statuette), making the awards one of the highest accolades a comedian can receive in Africa. All the best to the man from Omboloko.
