South Africa is going through some tough issues, including race, transformation and the land. A Cape Town comedy duo is therefore taking on these issues — with a hilarious touch.
Musician Carol Joy Williams (Meryl) and actress Mary Steward (Beryl) act as two moms who met through their 10-year-old sons, Briefly.co.za gathered.
They record short videos of their random "encounters," which invariably lead to funny jokes. Carol then posts them on Instagram and Facebook, where they have gone viral.
In an interview with SA People, Carol said their mission is to inspire transformation on both personal and societal levels. She explained:
We shot our first sequence of videos on my phone a month ago, and decided to share them on social media. It became clear that we were entertaining more than just ourselves, and so we decided to make another series of videos.
I guess our dreams for this is both to entertain (we all need a jolly good laugh!) as well as to engage people on some tough issues, using the platform of comedy to help with some of those tough pills that get stuck when not accompanied by a laugh or two.
