Nik Rabinowitz

Nik Rabinowitz was raised on the mean, green streets of Constantia, Cape Town, a world of ride-bys, piano lessons, and unrelenting love and financial support from family members.

He grew up on a farm, climbing trees and commentating on his own rugby games in at least three of South Africa’s eleven official languages.

After leaving University with a Business degree, he travelled Southern Africa with a theatre company and a herd of donkeys, inspiring a foray into stand-up comedy.

Over the subsequent ten years Nik has established himself as one of the country’s premier acts, well known for his multilingual satire and passion for goats.

Apart from producing and performing his own one man shows, Nik Rabinowitz presents The Week that Wasn’t on Talk Radio 702 and Cape Talk, plays a legion of characters for SA’s most popular online satirical production – ZA News, and is internationally recognised as the World’s leading Xhosa-speaking Jewish comedian.
