Cassim is a young Muslim man who works in his father's fabric shop in Johannesburg. However, Cassim wants to be a stand-up comedian, which his father disproves of. When he gets a gig at a local bar, he has to find a way of keeping it a secret.
This film is a great mix of comedy, stand up and real drama that we all face in our day to day lives.
Riaad Moosa gives a performance that is honest and sincere, there's great cinematography and superb direction in all the characters and performances, it is a must see for all South Africans and anyone who loves great storytelling!
MATERIAL can be seen at the John Rupert Theatre Saturday, 15 February at 2pm. Doors open at 1.30pm and tickets, R10 are available at the door.
