Isaac Gampu is a well-known stand-up comedian who has shared the stage with some big names. He headlined the Blacks Only Comedy Show that was held at the Sandton Convention Centre alongside Marc Lottering. The event was hosted by David Kau.
It all began on air with Y-FM in which the comedian was an undisputed comedy champ for a year and was automatically the co-host on Light it Up with Chubster on Saturday and Sunday nights from 9 to midnight. Comedy came to him in a dare, and it began in a club gig in Vosloorus at Spiros Café. It was a five minute debut that resulted in him being an anchor of Thursday shows. This led him to meet experienced comedians and being Vosloo’s comedy export to clubs like Caprivi Tembisa, Djembe in Meropa Polokwane, Ragging Bull and Cofi. In Witbank he did Cappello and a regular favourite at Cappello Mbombela. Talamanca in East London, Carnival in Brakpan with Jon Vlismas and Mark Banks, Set and Mi Bar in Rosebank, Europa in Pretoria, The Ozone in Soweto, Silver Lakes in Springs and a number of club gigs, which polished and shaped this Ekurhuleni specifically Vosloorican Comedian.
