Annalakshmi’s African Adventure

Annalakshmi’s African Adventure

Where do you go when you’re trying to get away from your monster mother-in-law? If you’re Annalakshmi, then it’s a different country and a different continent altogether!

Annalakshmi’s African Adventure is a hilarious musical comedy about being an Indian National taking refuge in South Africa.  This one-woman-show will take place for the first time on a Joburg stage on the 24th of March at the Theatre of Marcellus, Emperors Palace.

Using singing in a variety of Indian vernacular, as well as old and contemporary English music, Annalakshmi tackles family, social, economic and political issues.

She loves telling stories and giving candid commentary of her Indian take on things and her parodies are witty, funny and they hit home.

The show looks into why I had to leave India and how I came to choose South Africa as my place of refuge.  It’s also about my experiences in SA and the political / Bollywood-style love story between JZ and the Guptas,” comments Annalakshmi.   

Anasia Govender – better known as her stage character, Annalakshmi – is a 42-year-old mother of 3 and an entrepreneur.  She is also the chef and owner of Chilli Kadhai Restaurant in Durban.  In fact, this was where it all started when her video advertising the restaurant went viral after she gave Ed Sheeran’s song, Thinking Out Loud, her own twist (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0czAjRYCnk).

One of her comedy career highlights was being a semi-finalist on SA’s Got Talent 2017.  She has shared the stage with some of South Africa’s best comedians including Carvin Goldstone, Joey Rasdien and Marc Lottering, to name a few.

Kamz Govender, an exciting new up-and-coming comic, will be the opening act.  His clean, hilariously well-thought out one-liners, has him standing out on stage.

Annalakshmi’s African Adventure is entertainment for the whole family.  Tickets are available from R120 per person.
