Born and raised in Windhoek, the young lady with the deep voice that fills a room says she spent her formative years collecting relatable life experiences before completing her high school education at Windhoek’s Delta Secondary School.

Right after graduating, she dived headfirst into pursuing her dreams and practising her craft every day full-time, which she says is absolutely “worth it”. Comedian Waylene Beukes, known by her stage name Waybeline, is a 27-year-old Namibian-bred talent currently making a name for herself on the South African comedy scene.

Armed with just the right arsenal of anecdotes, she keeps the laughs coming. She has worked with Marc Lottering, Schalk Bezuidenhout, Jason Goliath and other comedians in growing her craft. She has dreams of working with Trevor Noah, but jokes that she has worked with people who actually do associate with him and considers American funny man Dave Chappelle her ‘comedy dad’.

Though her first love is telling jokes, she is enthusiastic about sketch comedy, acting and dancing. Her social media sites are filled with homemade memes, jokes, funny tales and hilarious skits featuring some of her funny friends.
