(Carvin H Goldstone)

The brainchild of popular Durban comedian, Carvin H Goldstone, the Next Comedy Generation is a developmental initiative on Durban's snowballing comedy scene that aims to introduce the city to the next generation of comedy stars.

The groundbreaking initiative is held as a monthly show and has been unearthing comedy talent from across city since last year. The next instalment in this series takes place on January 28 at the Bat Centre at Durban's scenic harbour side.

Young comedy talent from Durban, like Kamz Govender, Daryl Williams and Andrew Hughes have already moved up the ranks from this platform and performed at the likes of the esteemed Cape Town Comedy Club (rated one of 10 best comedy clubs in the world), The Goliath&Goliath Comedy Club in Joburb (Egoli's hottest newest addition to its buzzing comedy scene) and Parkers Comedy Club (considered the home of stand-up comedy in South Africa) - respectively.

January 28th's Next Generation Comedy show will be hosted by Kamz and features Daryl and Andrew along with the next generation of Durban's comedy stars: Marvin Peters, Mfundo Ndovela, Matt Needham, and Noel Green.

Tickets R80 pre-purchased at or R100 at the door. For bookings call ‪083 291 5702.
