Using comedy to make an impact where it is needed the most.
Award-winning comedian Mitch will soon be embarking on a national school tour to change the narrative around road safety using what he knows best, comedy. The Be Safe! tour that is funded by Mitch and Vivo Energy is aimed at educating on the road safety and as well as environmental issues.
“I am aiming at removing the free periods from Grade 12 and implementing road safety instead. With this tour, I would also like to have the law regulators see the need for learners to write learners in schools so when they finish high school they are drivers too,” he says.
Mitch says the project was inspired by coming up with efforts to reduce road accidents which are also caused by children who take their parents cars for joy rides without permission besides the other reasons.
“I will be visiting around 18 schools in 12 towns around the nation and discussing the idea of road safety courses. With this campaign, I am aiming to get the attention of the government and to have a seat down with officials to explain why this is important and will more effective. This is also to show that comedy can be done to educate and entertain,” he concludes.
Mitch is yet to announce dates but in the meantime, we can keep an eye on his social media pages for all updates. On his trip, the three time award winning comedian will take musicians JBlack,Phred Got 1,Future Is Gigs ,Dik Bones ,Bachman and Mabuzza just to mention a few.
