One of South Africa’s sharpest and most uncompromising satirists, Ben Voss unleashes an alter-ego who represents the face of the new South Africa – the rich, black, opinionated and botox-ed Business Woman of the Year, Beauty Ramapelepele.

Here she celebrates winning the largest fabric contract in South African history through expert insider dealing: the manufacture and supply of all costumes for the opening ceremony of the 2010 World Cup.

A cross between Lily Savage, Dame Edna Everage and Rory Bremner, Beauty brings her sharp mind, and even sharper tongue, to a post-election London with a brand new show that sees the British join the ranks of her satirical targets alongside South African politicians, international soccer stars, and Robert Mugabe.
