Biography

Schuster was drawn to the filmmaking process at an early age. As a child he and his brother would play practical jokes on his family and film these. He explained, in a 2010 interview about his early life in Bloemfontein, “I remember running down the isle of the Ritz Theatre, playing cowboys & crooks, which was all the rage at the time. I also remember loving Laurel and Hardy, Charlie Chaplin and the Three Stooges. I was always acting things out, and pulling pranks.

I used to fool my grandma into thinking I’d shot myself in the foot with my pellet gun… tomato sauce everywhere, me squealing like a wild pig. Pranking is just in my nature, but I’d never thought I’d become a movie star… no, I’m not a movie star, I’m just a local outjie that likes to entertain people.

Career

Schuster began working for the South African Broadcasting Corporation. During his time at the SABC, he created the Afrikaans radio series Vrypostige Mikrofoon with Fanus Rautenbach – which involved disguising his voice and playing phone pranks on unsuspecting victims.

On 19 June 2020, South African streaming service Showmax removed over six of Schuster’s films, citing his content as being “racially insensitive”, consideing he has used blackface in many of his films for “comedic effect”. This came during the heightened Black Lives Matter protests. Schuster reacted, saying he was “shocked” and “can’t believe that the content of his films does any harm”. He said his work is “innocent” and just him “pranking people”
