This teacher turned Stand-up Comedian, Dalin Oliver, grabbed the mic and started his on-stage journey in 2010, where he immediately captured audiences with his clean-cut, energetic and charming brand of comedy. His style has been described as easily accessible, nostalgic and diverse in the best kind of way.
Cape Town-born, this performer has since toured the country with three of his self-produced one-man shows. Stay laughing with him on Showmax and DSTV Catch Up where you can enjoy some of his finest work: “I Came, I Taught, I Left”, “Face For Radio” and Day Zero: The Water Shortage Comedy Tour”.
The self-proclaimed Vin Diesel look-alike also enjoyed sell-out success around the country with fellow Comedians Yaaseen Barnes, Carl Weber and Kagiso Mokgadi in the Award Winning ensemble stand-up comedy show, Day Zero: The Water Shortage Tour, which they performed in Toronto Canada as well.
His career highlights include being featured on Comedy Central Africa, multiple award nominations, producing two recorded comedy specials, as well as a big-screen debut in cinemas nationwide as one of the lead actors in the SA action-comedy Finders Keepers. He also shared the stage and was opening act to industry stalwarts Riaad Moosa, Barry Hilton, Stuart Taylor, and Nik Rabinowitz,
Signing fresh out of university, the 33 years old celebrates his 10th year with South Africa’s oldest commercial music and lifestyle radio station, Good Hope FM, where he dons the hat of award-nominated Sports Presenter on the weekday Breakfast Show from 06:00 – 09:00. He also presented Happy Hour, the Savanna Comic’s Choice Award nominee for a weekly comedy show.
When he is not on air or on stage, the dynamic performer can be found on or off the cricket field, rocking Newlands and Boland Park as the matchday MC for Paarl Rocks and Cape Town Blitz during the Mzansi Super League. He has also been part of the KFC Mini Cricket family and enjoyed working as MC at various Cricket SA events with the Proteas.
South Africa, this awkwardly good-looking comedian looks forward to meeting you.
