Kagiso Lediga is an award-winning South African standup comedian, actor, writer and film director who took it upon himself to try to make his traumatized nation laugh at their pain. He’s still trying. He created pioneering South African television satire and comedy sketch show The Pure Monate Show (PMS), and the two-time International Emmy-nominated Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola (LNN). Through his production company, Diprente, he has also created and helmed many original formats including Africa’s first Netflix Original Series Queen Sono, for which he is the show runner. Kagiso’s debut feature film, Catching Feelings, was released in May 2018 to a global audience as a Netflix Original and was followed a few months later by his second feature, Matwetwe (Wizard), which he produced in partnership with acclaimed DJ and record producer Black Coffee. In 2019, Kagiso earned a spot as one of Fast Company’s “Most Creative People in Business.”
