Veronica Wilson meets Eric Miyeni, a young (26) black South African standup comedian who was in Holland with his show “Twisted and Vile”. He uses comedy to tackle social issues such as alcoholism, racism and TV evangelists and to break down barriers, sometimes leaving both black and white audiences confused. He tells some good jokes from the show, also about Holland.
