Rounding out the fantastic line-up at the first ever "Comedy Central Presents…Live at Parker's" on Wednesday 28th March will be comedy giant Donovan Goliath, Italian stallion Vittorio Leonardi and Mpho "Popps" Modikoane.

    Donovan David Goliath (true story) is a Caucasian looking coloured guy from Mthatha who speaks Xhosa (also true!). His act includes a lot of storytelling and simple insights using various characters and impersonations to get his message across. Donovan has rocked fesses like the Tshwane Comedy Nights at State Theatre, the Soweto Comedy Festival and Blacks Only.
       
    Vittorio Leonardi always tries to show audiences a new way to see the world - slightly skewed, a bit quirky and governed by cartoon law. Hailing from the streets of Welkom, this Italian-born stallion left home and successfully navigated the many pitfalls of a world with shoes and electricity in his travels around SA. From shoe sizes to the inner workings of the Roman Army, from heavy metal to relationship jargon, this comic takes the world, turns it sideways and gets us to see it as it could be if we'd all just reach behind our backs, pull out a cream pie, throw it and learn to laugh!
       
    With 3 year's comedy experience under his belt, Mpho Popps is a young comedian who impresses every audience he steps in front of. The sky is the limit for this young performer, who first got noticed on So You Think You're Funnybefore going on the club circuit in Johannesburg, where he quickly made a name for himself and shared the stage with some of the biggest names in SA comedy, including Trevor Noah and Marc Lottering. He has subsequently appeared on Blacks Only, Mzansi Magic's Opening Guys and Late Night with Kgomotso.
       
    Holding it all together will be the one and only John Vlismas. This iconic veteran of the SA comedy scene stands for everything that is unique, hysterical and uncompromising in South African stand-up comedy. A true original and self-described "thinking man's scumbag", Vlismas hilariously combines a genuine intellect with unflinching and raw outrage.
