Janu-worry a laugh a minute
Cruise through longest month with market, comedy
Here’s to hoping you survived another dry week in the party scene.
Your Skinnerbek made a lot with the little she had in the past week.
While most of you were slaving away at your offices and jobs on Monday, your gossip gal made a round at the Locally Yours pop-up market at Tramways Building.
You might wonder how on Earth Monday and the Locally Yours market fit into the same sentence, but worry you not, Skinners got the scoop.
Since it’s still cruise liner season with some of the world’s most famous liners making stops in the Bay, the Queen Elizabeth dropped by to say hello on Monday.You see where I’m going with this, don’t you?For those who don’t. The pop-up market was set up to welcome tourists and give them a taste of what the Bay’s crafters have to offer.Although I’m neither Queen Elizabeth nor a tourist I thought to swing by and check the coast anyway, and there were sadly not that many visitors. Skinners can only hope the Peace Boat and Seabourn Sojourn brought more visitors to the market on Wednesday and Thursday.
Anyway, Skinners went to laugh more than her worries away at the Homecoming comedy show at 469 Bar Lounge in Motherwell on Tuesday evening with Skhumba Hlophe, Lonwabo Xata, Siya Seya and more on the lineup.As expected by just looking at the line-up, the show attracted a lot of familiar faces usually seen in comedy shows and kasi social events. I am convinced it’s impossible to miss Zimsto Eroofini at any event she attends as the sister is never really the quietest in a room. Skinnerbek was thrilled to also finally put a face to the name TakaTina, our famous social media comedian who makes up stories like he gets paid for it. I spotted him hanging out with another social media sensation Ta Fire, who is just as hilarious.
As much as Skinnerbek would have liked to share the excitement everyone else seemed to have about Skhumba, by now you all know he doesn’t tickle my funny bone. Nonetheless, he had the crown entertained, with some seemingly laughing on my behalf too. Don’t say I asked you this but, is Temba Ncetani’s black T-shirt stuck on him or does he just pile up on them?
Let’s catch up next week, when we have all survived the Janu-worry blues.
