A satirical one-man show, Namaste Bae promises a new-age healing ceremony unlike any other. Performed by critically acclaimed South African comedian and actor Rob van Vuuren, who adopts the crazed persona of a new-age spiritual social media guru who preaches about enlightenment and healing. As the self- proclaimed oracle of the Mother Scoby, van Vuuren guides audiences to discover themselves and unleash a better version through comedic catharsis. Namaste Bae was awarded the Gold Standard Bank Ovation Award at the 2023 National Arts Festival.

“…equal parts hilarious and fear-inducing…manic guilt, fear and self-loathing turned all the way up to a 10.” – Cue (David Mann)

“a cathartic self-help session, where laughter is the real medicine and connection with [the audience] is genuine….truly masterful.” – Weekend Special

“Namaste Bae is the guru you need and deserve.” – Broadway World
