Comedy Central Presents: The Goliath Comedy Experience 2017 

For the second time around -  Comedy Central will present South Africa’s “best friends of Comedy,” Goliath & Goliath for another smashing comedy special: The Goliath Comedy Experience 2017. 

Last year the event saw over 2 000 festivalgoers with standing ovations throughout sold out shows over one weekend. This year, #GoliathX2017 will spread the funny over a full week (24 – 30 April) with the biggest and newest names in comedy at Africa’s premium comedy club: the Goliath Comedy Club. 

On the bill are comedy greats such as Joey Rasdien, Tol A$$ Mo and John Vlismas; legends Joe Parker, Roni Modimola and Mark Banks; next generation funnies such as Glen Biderman-Pam and Beach all on the Goliath Comedy Club stage. Donovan, Jason and Nicholas Goliath will perform their first three-man experiential comedy show in a prelude to the launch of their national tour. 

Whether new or a seasoned comedy fan, the tailor-made comedy shows on offer, have something for everyone! 

NEXT GEN: Monday, 24 April 2017 - Great open spot comedians are a dime a dozen, so 10 favourite up and comers were chosen to entertain and show you where they are going. No competitions, no battles, just brand new next generation funny.

OLDS COOL: Tuesday, 25 April 2017 - One of the biggest hits from the 2016 Goliath Comedy Experience, this show features South African Comedy legends who are still as funny and relevant as Obama. 

30 IN 5: Wednesday, 26 April 2017 - 30 comedians will all be doing 5 minutes each with no host. The line-up is a mix of well-established comics and youngsters who’ve been doing this since last week. There’s no hierarchy, each comic draws a number out of a hat and depending on the number they choose, that’s where they are on the line-up. It’s fast paced, witty and entertaining! 

GOLIATH & GOLIATH: Thursday, 27 April 2017 - SA’s funny trio, Donovan, Jason and Nicholas Goliath bring you their first three man experiential comedy show. This show will be a launch to their national tour. 

HEADLINERS: Friday 28 and Saturday 29 April 2017 - The most popular show from the launch event, for obvious reasons, a heavy hitter show featuring a mix of South African greats. There will be 2 shows this year, Friday and Saturday.
