David Kau could not have been any more correct when he said social media has given a platform for young aspiring comedians to flourish.
More and more skit makers and vloggers are using these platforms to share their content much to the delight of their followers.
In an interview with HuffPost SA, Kau said he liked watching youngsters grow into the kind of people they want to be in the industry.
"However, this does not mean every funny person on social media can have a stand-up show. Not everyone is good on stage and you don't have to be good on stage to prove your worth as a comic. Find someone to package you properly for the platform you are on. Keep at what you are good at and if that's pushing your work on social media, then stay there. If your dream is to be a stand-up comedian, then take up the path," Kau said.
