AFTER touring the UK, Europe, Australia and North America, Durban-born comedian Kevin Fraser brings his Minister of Entertainment show to The Globe at Durban’s Suncoast Casino on December 2, then performs at the Savoy Theatre in Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth) on December 14.
These dates follow well-received performances of the show in Gauteng and precede a sold-out December 15 performance at Cape Town’s Baxter Theatre.
Booking for the Durban and Gqeberha shows, both of which start at 8pm, is via www.kevinfraserofficial.com. Ticket prices start at R250.
Fraser is one of South Africa’s most viewed comedians and content creators. He has repeatedly broken the one-million-view benchmark with his daily observations and satires on social media platforms.
In his new show, presented by Cream Kulture, he is said to trail-blaze a path of absurd comedy, hilarious satire and forward-thinking connectivity.
Previously known as Spindoctor, Fraser began performing at the age of 16 as a DJ in Durban. He became known as a quirky, techy DJ who fused sassy house beats with soulful vocals, adding percussive flavour to his sound.
In 2013, by the time he made the career move to Johannesburg, he had built a powerful reputation and eclectic following in the industry. He was known for his versatility and connection with varied audiences, thanks to the high energy he brought to the stage.
Since then, Fraser has entertained in more than 100 venues and festivals across South Africa, Miami, Australia, the UK, Europe and Indonesia. He has organised some of South Africa’s hottest parties as a key ambassador for entertainment gurus, G&G Productions. It was with that company that Fraser performed for crowds of up to 12 000 people. He shared the stage with the likes of Steve Aoki, Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike, Afrojack and Avicii.
Fraser’s entrepreneurial skill inspired him to develop not just an entertainment brand, but a label that speaks to a niche market. He founded Cream Kulture in 2013, co-ordinating all his own events, developing a clothing line, and being the ambassador of his own brand.
After his move to Australia in 2014, Fraser’s passion for performance and his natural comedic talent started to evolve into something truly unique. Before long, he realised he could not only make people dance, but laugh a little too.
Fraser began releasing videos about his experience as an ex-pat abroad and did so through the guise of stereotypical South African personas. The success of these videos was instantaneous. Kevin’s career took off, and his fan base exploded.
For his stage show, Fraser brings a unique fusion of music and comedy.
