A decade since a then-unknown Carvin H Goldstone walked onto the stage at Sibaya’s iZulu Theatre to deliver his first comedy set as a contestant in the Madras Masala Comedy Competition, he is coming back. He returns to the iZulu Theatre stage with The Best of Carvin H Goldstone Tour on August 19, 20 and 21.
“We are really excited to welcome Carvin back to our stage. Ten years ago, Sibaya is where he first made his mark on the comedy scene. The show promises to be a hilarious culmination of his best work,” says Belinda Jelf, the Marketing Manager at Sibaya.
Since winning the Madras Masala Comedy Competition in 2006, this larger-than-life and much-loved comedy genius has become a household name and is one of the most successful Durban-based stand-up comedians. Three sold-out one man shows since 2011; international tours and multiple awards have earned Carvin respect across South Africa's comedy community.
His rise to the top was rubber-stamped this year when he was chosen as the headline act at the recent Kings and Queens of Comedy in Port Elizabeth over comedy veterans like Loyiso Gola, Stuart Taylor, Chester Missing and Jason Goliath. His comedy DVD sales are in the thousands and his YouTube and online views in the hundreds of thousands. He regularly sells out large theatres across the country and recently returned from his second Australian Comedy Tour. Wherever he goes, his hilarious, family-friendly comedy style and instantly likeable on-stage persona leave people in stitches. With no swearing or sexual references the show is designed for the whole family but parental guidance is advised.
Shows take place on August 19 and 20 at 20h00 and on August 21 at 15h00. Tickets from R120 pp booked through Computicket.
