Riaad Moosa - Strictly Halaal
Riaad Moosa

Riaad Moosa was the hit of the  Heavyweight Comedy Jam in London in  2006.The English crits saw Riaad as THE South African comic with a big international future! Now the Doctor turned comic has added a hit one man show to his repertoire.

Strictly Halaal,  the new one man show by Riaad Moosa sold out in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town during it’s first run. The good news for people who don’t get out of the office much  is that the doctor of comedy has agreed to do house calls at corporate functions.

"Strictly Halaal" is an up close and personal insight into the mind of Riaad Moosa as  he uses comedy to tackle sensitive issues like Islamaphobia, racism and prolapsed hemorrhoids. 

“There’s a sense of confusion and misunderstanding about Muslims and their culture” says Riaad. “People are aware of words like ‘Halaal’ but few understand its relevance and meaning. In my show, I tackle concepts associated with Muslims that people are aware of but do not fully understand. My aim is to dispel the myths about Islam using humour as a vehicle.”

But it’s not only Moslem-phobia that gets the Moosa treatment in this side splitting one-man show.  As the doctor turns his attention to subjects, ranging from Bollywood to current politics to apartheid, his relatives will finally grasp why he practices comedy instead of medicine.

“The show is a message of love, tolerance and oneness but hopefully it’s also funny” said Riaad at the launch of Strictly Halaal.  “David Kau got Winnie Mandela to come to his show, I've been trying to get Osama.” To date, he has not succeeded in adding Osama to the guest list, however, so we are attempting to market the corporate version in Afghanistan this year.

A professionally made corporate video can provide a platform for companies to communicate a message, demonstrate a product in action or express techniques and ideas to staff in an interesting and dynamic way. Corporate videos can do all of this for a fraction of the cost, as the film becomes a contained medium through which a company's message or product becomes accessible to a wider audience in a shorter period of time. more info »
