After a decade in the comedy industry, Atkins has garnered a reputation as a highly talented act and indeed one of the funniest Comedians in South Africa!

His performances are loaded with high-energy, intelligent observations, and dotted with hilarious antics and impressions.
His sharp-witted humor makes for unforgettable audience interactions as he artfully skirts the line between funny and edgy.

He has been nominated 3 times for a Savanna Comics’ Choice Award (‘Best Friend of Comedy’ – 2016, 2017, 2018) and has performed all over SA, with the biggest names in the industry.
He is currently touring his 3rd Solo Comedy Show (“Not Famous”) around the country, and is planning his debut Australia tour for early 2020.

Atkins is also an accomplished actor, having starred in dozens of stage productions from the tender age of 13, and more recently in adverts for YouTube and TV.
