An entertainer with flair, Ndumiso delves into honest observations of everyday life in South Africa; the diversity of South African cultures; as well as the uniqueness of black people. Painting the nation from a young black man's point of view, this talented man is well on his way to the top!
After moving to Cape Town from Zwelitsha, a small township next to KingWilliam's Town in the Eastern Cape where he was born and raised, Ndumiso had never imagined that a national diploma in design at the Cape Technikon would be the start of a whole new creative world.† Inspired by his family and the likes of Eddie Murphy and Bill Cosby, his first big break came in 2004 during the Vodacom Comedy Campus Tour, where Ndumiso took his act to the stage for 3 minutes!† It was these 3 minutes that got Ndumiso into the Comedy AllStars Collective, performing at a host of city venues, including the celebrated Independent Armchair Theatre in Cape Town.† It was at this point that many could see the rising of this young talented comedian.
In 2004 Ndumiso won Best Newcomer in the Red Bull Comedy AllStars Comedy Challenge.† Ndumiso then started touring South Africa and has performed at† the Barnyard Theatres in Durban, Pretoria and Johannesburg.† He has shared the stage with local award winning comedy gurus such as Kurt Schoonraad, Mel Miller, Riaad Moosa, Stuart Taylor, Dave Levinsohn, Cokey Falkow, Marc Lottering and David Kau.
At the Blacks Only Comedy shows in Johannesburg, he received countless ovations and praise from the media.† He went on to share the stage with the best in the business at the Heavyweights Comedy Jam, headlining in both the Vodacom Comedy Campus tour and Vodacom Funny Festival.† He has also made his mark in corporate events and has wowed the rock audience when he headlined the comedy section at the rock festival - Rocking the Daisies.†
Most recently Ndumiso has performed at the 46664 It's No Joke Comedy show and rocking NIgeria twice.† He has performed at all big comedy festivals in South Africa in the past two years and will shortly headline with the Nando's Comedy Festival.
Ndumiso believes in putting his heart and mind into everything he loves doing the most.† Clear the way because Ndumiso Lindi is about to take centre stage!
