More about Mark Sampson

Mark Sampson was founder of the Cape Comedy Collective in 1999, mentoring Loyiso Gola, Riaad Moosa, Kurt Schoonraad, Kagiso Lediga, Nik Rabinowitz and many others before MC’ing the CCC show at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2003.

He toured three solo stand-up shows to theatres nationally and was the top-selling comedian at the Grahamstown Festival from 2005-11. Before he left to go Africa Clockwise, he performed at COP17 in Durban for the EU, hosted the world’s largest sustainability conference and launched the City of Cape Town’s Climate Smart Campaign. In 2016 he was voted best presenter at the 18th SAASTEC Conference (SA Association of Science and Technology Centres) in KZN.
FBYC-ROWING-1
In 2013, the Sampson family left Cape Town to drive clockwise around Africa on waste vegetable oil.

Six and a half years, 38 countries and 47000km later, their Big Green Truck became the first carbon-neutral vehicle to circumnavigate the continent without using fossil fuels.

"SA's funniest stand-up comedian by some distance" The Star
