Tshepo Mogale


Bloemfontein native Tshepo Mogale began his professional comedy career at the Armchair in Cape Town with 25 other comics who later formed what would be known as the Cape Comedy Collective. While on a mission to grow his comedy brand, Tshepo found his passion taking him from some of Cape Town’s dingiest venues through to some of the town’s classiest venues. The next big stage for his career came when he got invited to a nation wide university tour and would later decide to move to Johannesburg where he became a comic hit on the Parkers Comedy express circuit, doing comedy shows in cities like Bloemfontein, Kimberly, Durban, Vereeniging and Pretoria. While balancing his comedy and his 8 to 5 job, he worked on some literature that got published in an internationally acclaimed Urban series and had the same work translated to German and Swedish.

His success could only get better from there as he has performed in some of the country’s biggest comedy festivals which include the Cape Town International Comedy Festival, the Soweto Comedy Festival, DSTV Comedy Festival, Comedy Blackout and the Tshwane Comedy Festival, which he continues to produce to date.

It would be his comedy kwaito artist character, Spykos, that would leave a more memorable experience for audiences all across the African continent, Spykos’ album was number one and went gold in countries like Zimbabwe, Angola, Botswana, Zambia and South Africa.
