Local comedy heavyweight, Nik Rabinowitz, will headline at the Hanover Street Comedy Sundowners at GrandWest on Sunday, June 5. Comedy fans can look forward to an evening of Rabinowitz putting his customary spin on South Africa’s often laughable political landscape and current affairs.
Rabinowitz, who refers to himself as the “world’s leading Xhosa-speaking Jewish comedian”, has been a staple on the local comedy scene for years. He performs to packed venues countrywide, has co-authored a book, ‘The Youngsters’, and performed as an opening act at the Toronto South African Film Festival in 2014.
He is also known for his radio show ‘The Week that Wasn’t’, which aired on Talk Radio 702 and Cape Talk, and has successfully produced a string of one man shows. In 2010 he starred in ‘Bafunny Bafunny’, which toured South Africa as well as the United Kingdom where the show sold out the Royal Albert Hall.
Joining Rabinowitz at the Hanover Street Comedy Sundowners will be Tracy Klass as host, Angel Campey, Liam Bento and Kenwyn Davids. The doors will open at 5pm and the festivities will kick off at 6pm.
