“With fist over heart and peri-peri chicken wing in hand, I do swear that I will be (mostly) faithful to the Comedy Cabinet and will disrespect and poke fun at the Comedy Constitution and all other hilarious laws of the Cabinet; and I undertake to hold my office as Minister with honour and humour; to be truly hilarious; not to divulge directly (but through my spokesperson) any secret matter or another comic’s material entrusted to me; and to perform the functions of my office with half-hearted vigour and to be fired up by comedy.”
These were the words that echoed through the halls at the official unveiling of Nando’s presents MASS HYSTERIA, the stand-up comedy tour that takes politics to the people. Now in its third year, the Ministers swore their oaths to make South Africa a funnier place – and as elections go, this was one of the stiffest ever.
