As a relatively new comic on the circuit, he has rocked stages and fesses all over the country including Blacks Only, Soweto Comedy Festival, 99% Xhosa Comedy, 99% Zulu Comedy, Jou Ma Se Comedy (Cape Town), Mzansi Festival, Kings & Queens of Comedy, Three Kings Comedy and completed a 51 show, 3 month run for LOL at Gold Reef City. He was also nominated in the ‘Newcomer Of The Year Category’ at the 2012 Comics Choice Awards and in the Blackberry Breakthrough category in 2013.

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.

Currently no upcoming shows, sorry!
