SA Comedy Star Eugene Khoza Brings OCD – Reshuffled to Pretoria for One Night Only!


Pretoria-born comic Eugene Khoza brings his one-man OCD – Reshuffled show to the Atterbury Theatre on 17 May for a one night-only performance, set to be recorded for a DVD special.

OCD (Obviously Can’t Deny) speaks to South Africans’ state of denial about a lot of things – the state of the country, political reshuffling and some of the weird day-to-day things we take for granted. “OCD – Reshuffled isn’t a racially-driven show and I’m not pushing a political agenda – but if you stop to think about how mad daily life in SA is, it’s not hard to find the funny side of things,” says Khoza.

“We brought OCD to the stage at the amazing Atterbury Theatre in December 2016, but a lot has happened since then, so that’s why we’ve gone with the new title – everything’s reshuffled and audiences will definitely hear something new, this time around!”

Khoza has performed all over the country and won fans across the spectrum with his multilingual delivery and multicultural understanding. He got his start on M-Net’s Laugh Out Loud comedy competition in 2007, where his semi-final performance saw him added to the lineup of Arts Alive – and get a foot in the door with two of the country’s biggest comedy shows: Blacks Only and the Heavyweight Comedy Jam.


A co-hosting gig on YFM followed – and he hasn’t looked back. He’s hosted TV shows on SABC1 and e.tv and appeared at numerous comedy showcases including the Pretoria Comedy Festival, the Just Because Comedy Festival, Blacks Only, and the Heavyweight Comedy Jam. He has had four successful one man shows: Khoz-A Can, Even Me, Pardon Me and Never Ready. He was also the Brand Ambassador for the Nedbank ‘Savvy’ Campaign.

Khoza’s opening act is Jo’burg born-and-bred director, writer and performer Gilli Apter. Gilli has worked as a comedy writer since 2005, on a variety of different platforms. Her work includes Marc Lottering’s sitcom, Loitering in Jozi, SAFTA-winning shows ZAnews and Those Who Can’t and most recently, Nik Rabinowitz’s 2017 one-man show, Fortyfied. 


In 2015 Gilli started writing for herself - because after enduring success writing TV shows that no one has ever seen, the next logical step was to do stand up in places no one ever goes to.‎ Her style is mostly observational and her mostly-autobiographical subject matter is wide-ranging - from navigating the waters of being in her 30s, to the curse of having to teach her parents about technology, and how come we no longer love Nicolas Cage.
