The latest instalment of the Next Comedy Generation stages on 31 August and 1 September 2018 at the Garden Court Marine Parade Hotel and features a brand new line up of new comics from around South Africa, with a few guests from outside the country too!
This particular show also commemorates women coming up in the comedy industry – with three South African comediennes as well as a funny lady from Namibia on the lineup!

The Next Generation Comedy show, which is hosted by one of Durban’s biggest comedy exports, Carvin H Goldstone, has helped breathe life into local comedy by introducing new acts to audiences.

The series of stand-up comedy shows was conceptulised by Goldstone to help develop Durban’s young comedy industry. It started three years ago as a small scale Durban initiative to unearth local comedy talent. It has since developed and gone national, with The Cape Town Comedy Club and Goliath Comedy Club, in Joburg, also holding their own regular Next Generation Comedy shows.

Goldstone said his new focus with this series is to have more women in comedy, telling their stories.  

The show on 31 August and 1 September will feature Mira from Cape Town, Durban locals Venessa Morton and Jo Holroyd, and Namibia’s Waylene Beukes.

“Going forward every Next Generation show will aim to have women on the line up. There aren’t many women in comedy, so I know myself and others in Durban comedy are determined to change that,” said Goldstone

“We know the future of comedy will be everyone telling their stories, not just men,” he said.

Other acts on the lineup include Durban’s Darrien Asbury (who can also be seen on MTV’s hit prank show, You Got Got), Thami M Dlamini (Durban), Shanray van Wyk (King Williamstown), Cyril Basker (Durban), with Goldstone hosting the shows. International Comedy talent, and Bangkok Comedy House’s resident host, Dustin Moore, will close the shows.

Be sure to catch the Next Comedy Generation show at Garden Court Marine Parade, 31 August and 1 September at 8pm on both nights.
