Shucks Shabalala is a teacher and tourist guide to a mixed bag of tourists whom are taking his survival guide to SA very seriously. His students include ”Heinz” from Germany, “Yoti” from Greece, “ Jean-Pierre” from France, “Koert” from The Netherlands, “Zaheeya” from India, “Maggie” from Ireland, “Xing Xang” from China amongst others. They are genuinely eager to learn about SA, so Schuks and Shorty are only too happy to oblige with a series of hysterical demonstrations of life in SA. The comedic results range from South-Africa’s most famous celebrities being victimized by Shabalala’s antics and even includes a full stadium packed with soccer fans where the controversial Vuvuzela is applied as a tool to test any soccer fan’s enthusiasm to the ninth degree.

Amidst all the excitement, an unsuspecting Schuks Shabalala falls prey to a greedy conwoman’s wiles. He is duped and charmed by the drop dead gorgeous “Etti” despite ongoing the words of caution offered by Shorty and the rest of his trusted team. “Donna” who, in spite of her attempts to make her feelings known is overlooked by Schuks who is utterly fixated on Etti’s beauty and charm.

Nothing and no-one is sacred in OH SCHUKS ITS SCHUSTER 201..0. Common misperceptions like lions and elephants walking the streets of Johannesburg are put to good comedy use.
SCHUKS 2010 also features some Bollywood-inspired musical numbers to allow Schuks to make fun of some of the country’s most powerful and influential types.
