Playing homage to their first official comedic production 10 years ago, comedic and entertainment agency, GOLIATH and GOLIATH launched their anniversary tour in July 2022 with a sold out show at The Lyric Theatre, Gold Reef City, Johannesburg. The tour now has its eyes set on Cape Town with performances on the 25th August at Premium Sports Bar, Mitchells Plain, 26 August Walala Wasala, Claremont and 27th August Canal Walk Auditorium, Century City. Tickets are R150 and available on Webtickets.

Many years ago, with the initial vision of bringing comedy to coloured audiences, the Goliath’s developed “Awednesday”. A comedy night held the last Wednesday of every month. It was their first comedy production to grow a cult following. Soon after at a carwash in Florida Johannesburg, GOLIATH and GOLIATH was born. The day Jason, Donovan and Nicholas met and spoke about working together on a formal basis. This then led to Jason’s sister, Kate Goliath, resigning from her job in Communications, to become their talent manager, then later on, the Managing Director of GOLIATH and GOLIATH.

With MD Kate Goliath at the helm,  today GOLIATH and GOLIATH are renowned for their stand-up comedy and corporate entertainment offering. They are a multi-award winning agency and pioneers in the comedic space who work with multinational brands, local and international producers and talent.

“Covid directly affected our industry, our business and the careers of the Goliath comedic trio. As an SME, we feel blessed that we are able to celebrate 10 years and spread happiness in its purest form; bringing stand-up comedy to a live audience”, says Kate Goliath MD, GOLIATH and GOLIATH.

With Covid restrictions being lifted, GOLIATH and GOLIATH is focused more than ever on spreading “the happy” and “the laughs”. So Cape Town audiences should prepare themselves for a big bill line-up of comedians and tons of laughter!
