Dillan Oliphant is the 2015 and 2016 Comedy Central Roast Champion and a Comics Choice Award winner and he is coming to Durban.
The Eldorado Park funny man will be bringing his highly acclaimed one man show, ‘Oliphant in the Room’ to Durban’s new home of comedy, the Durban Jewish Center (DJC) on October 27, 28 and 29.
Oliphant has accumulated many comedy accolades in a short space of time but he is perhaps best known as the stand out act on Trevor Noah’s ‘NationWild DVD’.
His dead pan one liners were many’s highlight of the ‘Nationwild Tour’ and Oliphant was the most talked about act off the DVD where Trevor Noah introduced some of his favourite up and coming comedians.
Fresh-faced and with a fresh approach, described as a dead-pan-one-liner comic, Oliphant has grown from a novice to making waves nationally in a relatively short period of time.
As the only young comic in the deadpan game, Oliphant is refreshingly without the many “copy and paste” tags associated with young acts still learning their trade. The command of his style and his approach to his art was rewarded with two accolades: being named winner of the ‘Newcomer of the year award’ at the Annual SA Comic’s Choice awards for 2012; and a much sought after opening spot in South Africa’s best-selling comedy tour of all time, ‘Trevor Noah’s – That’s Racist’.
Away from the stage, Oliphant has made appearances on television in ‘L.O.L’ – a Multichoice commissioned show, ‘Comedy Central Roast’ and ‘Late Night News with Loyiso Gola’ on e.TV, showing he is more than a one trick pony.
