From a young age, Devin Gray knew he was destined for the comedic stage. That and he hasn’t found anything he’s better at. “My comedy career is fuelled by the desire to prove my Grade 7 English teacher wrong,” says Gray. “She said that being a clown would never get me anywhere in life.” Resonating with audiences of all age groups, Gray’s career has already seen him perform on almost every comedic platform within South Africa as well as a few appearances in Europe. Deriving his comedic sense from the world around him, and through his own opinion on how things happen and why, Gray shares with audiences stories that will leave them thinking “Now that’s funny…sad but funny!” http://www.devingray.co.za/

In a very short period of time KG has moved from being an open-mic comedian to being a featured act in club, theatre and corporate comedy.He made his big stage performance at the Joburg Arts Alive Festival in the Comedy Nine-Nine showcase and earning rave reviews from the audience members and organizers alike. http://kgcomic.com/
