The craziest thing to happen to me in recent times is when somebody walked up to me after a show and said to me: “I loved your show. I didn’t understand it, but I loved it.” I was thankful.
– Tzvi Karp on the less mainstream, more alternative ends of ZA culture.

It was amazing. Today Bomb Productions continues on a similar path, recently being rated the most watched TV show on DSTV.

No quote necessary. The throne speaks for itself.
