Riaad Moosa is a medical doctor and both his parents are doctors and all his aunts and uncles are doctors.

But his dad has always said to him, “Riaad, you can do anything you want to in this world….as long as you become an orthopaedic surgeon first.”

Having trained as a comedy magician, Riaad was challenged to move over to pure stand-up – propless, gimmickless, trickless – for the adrenalin rush of relying on just himself, his voice and thousands of screaming fans…..

Riaad Moosa started performing stand-up at the Cape Comedy Collective’s free Comedy Lab workshops, and just two months later he was the winner of the hotly contested One City, Many Comics Talent Competition held as part of the One City Festival in September 1999.

Riaad represented the CCC at the 9th International Anti-Corruption Conference in Durban in October 1999 and appeared on Evita: Live and Dangerous on eTV as a guest of Pieter-Dirk Uys in December of that year.

He is a headliner on the CCC’s Cape Town circuit and appeared on stages all over the country as part of the Green’s Spicer Comedy Tour to campus cities nationwide in 2000.

Riaad Moosa | Comedian

Riaad Moosa celebrated Eid by headlining the final show of the CCC’s run of their festive celebration “FROLIC!” at the Spier Amphitheatre in December 2001.

He spent 2002 living in Gauteng and performed regularly in venues around Jo’burg.

He was the hit of the 5fm Heavyweight Comedy Jam at the Sandton Centre in April, appeared on the Sprite Soul Comedy national tour in May and performed at the Laugh Out Loud concert for the Reach for a Dream Foundation in November which was broadcast on SABC3 on New Year’s Eve.

Riaad returned to his native Cape Town in 2003 to rejoin the Cape Comedy Collective’s mission to make the Mother City laugh.

He is currently living in Jo’burg and performs regularly at comedy clubs and venues throughout the city.

Riaad’s intelligent and charming comic observations have made him a very popular choice for corporate entertainment.
