Season 1

The Bantu Hour is a South African satirical sketch and variety comedy show created by a comedy troupe comprised of stand-up comedians and professional actors, featuring archetypal South African characters.

Hosted by comedian Kagiso Lediga and featuring musician Hugh Masekela as the house bandleader and co-host, the show stars progressive local comedians and actors.

Each week the show hosts a celebrity guest, a stand-up comedian and a musical performance to close the show. The series features an ensemble cast of repertory actors.
