Ryle caught up with the comic to hear all about his success, but it wasn’t the first time they had met, as Yaaseen hilariously MCd the COSMO Sexiest Man 2019 competition, in which Ryle was a finalist.

Yaaseen entered the world of comedy around 4 or 5 years ago when he started posting funny content on Twitter. He soon performed his first live show, and the rest is history!

As a school kid at home, watching SABC’s Pure Monate Show, Yaaseen realized the quality of local comedy, and now has a series of his own, The Weekly Noise.

The show is a funny and satirical look at the news, as Yaaseen wanted to produce a lighter take on the news in the midst of a lot of negative narratives and headlines.

His success has greatly been due to the amazing support in his life, including his sisters Quanita Rossouw, Rizqua Barnes and Shehaam Shabodien, along with his Na’eemah Masoet.

Having met in Grade 1 after being placed together at the same desk, they have been laughing together ever since.

As for his parents, while they didn’t understand his passion for comedy at first, it wasn;t long until they saw his talent and potential, supporting his decision to pursue his career over studying.

Their support was clearly well deserved as Yaaseen has gone on to write for an Emmy nominated TV show, star at international festivals, and never stops entertaining the family.
