Carvin H Goldstone ‘the other South African comedian’
A mixed Jew, Zulu, Indian and American, Carvin H Goldstone is one of South Africa’s most successful stand-up comedians. Nominated as South African Comics’ Choice Comedian of the Year in 2016 and 2017, Carvin’s unique no swearing style of comedy has intrigued comedy and non-comedy lovers alike.
Sharp, witty, animated and a master of impersonation, Carvin talks about South Africa and its bizarre politics, his travels around the world as a touring comic, being multiple races and family politics. He has toured Australia as a solo act and returns with a show that looks at life being the ‘other South African comedian’ in a world that only has enough time for one famous African comic
Basically Carvin is well known as a poor man’s Trevor Noah. And sometimes just a poor man. And most times just poor.
Carvin has toured extensively across Africa and the Middle East as a solo act. He has had three sold out one man shows and three comedy specials. He featured on Comedy Central Africa and was voted in the Top Five African comics to watch on youtube. Carvin’s unique ancestry has blessed him with a wealth of funny topics to explore in his comedy.
Born to a mixed American and Indian mother and mixed Zulu and Jewish father, amongst a few other nationalities, Carvin is mixture of culture, race and religion, all of which he presents in his unique no swearing style of comedy.
Carvin regularly sells out theatres back home in South Africa with both old and young attending his comedy show.
See him live on Sunday, 22 April at Queensland Multicultural Centre at 5.30PM.
