"It's giving Mr Bones. People will clown on twitter but step out in real life. Also twitter is not that big in SA so the real buyers who can afford the tickets are not here they're out there. If you've watched comedy specials in SA before then know whites/Indians gonna fill up."
"Your Tix are expensive brother."
"South Africans have money to support acts from other countries, but not South African acts."
