On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Ben Voss about Mamba Republic.
Mamba Republic is a rapidly-paced satirical sketch comedy show. Reuniting the talents of Ben Voss (Beauty Ramapelepele) and John van de Ruit (Spud) Mamba Republic takes a savagely funny look at all that is wrong and very wrong in the Rainbow Nation. With their unique blend of sharp
wit, hopeless optimism and clever characterisation, the duo sink their fangs into the fiascos, farces and foibles of South African life. Whether it is their unique take on fees must fall, state capture, online dating, the economy, sport, technology, casual racism, an alternative national anthem, or even the most unusual football match in living memory, Mamba Republic will have you hooting in your chair and clutching at your face at the utter absurdity of life at the foot of Africa.
Mamba Republic follows in the footsteps of Green Mamba (2002) and Black Mamba (2005) which together racked up over 800 performances in five years, winning numerous awards and developing a cult following all over Southern Africa.
