Donovan David Goliath’s bedtime stories about growing up in the Transkei as a coloured boy who looks white but speaks fluent Xhosa are more funny than scary. In fact, it’s these life experiences that launched him
into comedy in the first place. It all began on the 26th September 2010 where he did his first ever 4min 35sec set at the Comedy Underground in Melville.
It’s safe to say that most of his success thus far has been fuelled by his dad’s motto: “Work the hardest. Be yourself.” His act is based around insightful storytelling and simple truths using various characters and impersonations.
