Goliath and Goliath are a duo that will offer visitors to the Carnival Comedy Sessions double the fun and double the laughter at their show every Wednesday from 24 July to 28 August at the Carnival City Mardi Gras Theatre. This double act really looks like it is just what we’ve been waiting for in the South African comedy arena.
Jason and Donovan Goliath have two things in common, they have the same surname and they are both stand-up comedians. Strangely enough, they aren’t members of the same family but have both enjoyed success as stand-up comedians.
Jason has a larger than life personality and physique and besides having played at the leading comedy venues, also features on TV as Cell C’s “Farrell”, First for Women’s “Dashboard head” and he is also one of Castle Lager’s “Amajitas”. As Donovan says about him:
“Jason Goliath is so fat that if you stand too close to him you lose cell phone reception.”
Donovan is harder to label. He is a Caucasian-looking coloured guy who speaks Xhosa (what a mix!). His comedy is based on telling stories that reveal simple truths about people and he does so using various characters and impersonations. Jason says of him:
“We have successfully managed to teach Donovan English, but convincing him that the western world wears shoes on stage has been a challenge.”
Together, their comedic styles and personalities combine to fill a stage (which apparently isn’t as difficult for Jason) with non-stop laughter. You can also expect a host of different comedian guests at each show.
So, if it’s a bellyful of laughs you’re after, don’t miss Goliath and Goliath in action from 20h00 every Wednesday. Tickets cost R80 each and are available at the door. For reservations, please call 011 898 7000.
