Alexander Upstairs Presents THE REAL DIRT

Within a two year period that coincided with his thirtieth birthday, Lebogang Mogashoa moved countries, lost a parent, and changed careers. He insisted that he was fine; all he needed was chardonnay, an entire carrot cake and a good night's sleep - every single day. Until he was mugged at gun point just before his thirty-first birthday. He suddenly found himself buried under the weight of three decade's worth of terrifying experiences. In The Real Dirt, he examines some of those experiences through gratifyingly personal and hilarious stories that arrive at a satisfying moment of human connection, and an Apple product.

Lebo Mogashoa is a writer and storyteller based in Johannesburg. After completing a degree at UCT, he followed America's next top model to Korea, where, sadly, instead he ended up teaching English... But he also developed a cult following for his Storytelling Series "When We Were Nearly Young". He returned to South Africa in 2014, where he has been running successful shows in both Johannesburg and Cape Town, while writing for TV and theatre. Lebo's popularity has grown through his ability to share his honest experiences on difficult subject matters. He penned possibly the most raunchy story in "We Didn't Come to Hell for the Croissants" and is currently working with POPArt on The Storytellers Series and is a writer on TV's hit show "The Queen". He has studied storytelling under the guidance of Kevin Allison of RISK!
