GOLIATH AND GOLIATH
South Africa’s most loved and versatile comedy trio, Jason, Donovan and Nicholas Goliath of GOLIATH AND GOLIATH are three of South Africa’s leading comedians, MCs, presenters and voice over artists.
Although Jason, Nicholas and Donovan are young in the game, they have become a giant force in the comedy industry, which has made GOLIATH AND GOLIATH the most recognisable and respected comedic brand in the industry.
Their mission was always to be a brand and a group of comedians recognised for putting comedy first, providing opportunities for new and experienced comedians and to develop and educate audiences by consistently providing world class stages and productions.
This ethical and humble approach as has put them in good stead with a national fan base and an award winning business.
Here is a brief background on each of them:
Jason Goliath was a presenter on the SABC 3 SAFTA nominated show, The Man Cave as well as The Morning Show on eTV. He is considered an experienced MC and one of South Africa’s top comedians – and has performed at leading comedy rooms and events locally and abroad. Jason was also the host of SABC 3’s late-night talk show, Larger Than Life and is a prominent MC and media personality. Jason also played the role of Gatiep in the SAFTA Nominated SABC 1 Sitcom, Ses’ Top La.
His style of comedy is often portrayed as a sexy fat guy, telling stories of being an overweight child and growing up into a sexy beast – he is strong, loud and riveting.
Jason is an esteemed and professional facilitator and has delivered this service to Standard Bank, FNB, Bidvest, Stanlib, Nedbank, Deloitte, Vodacom, DSTV / Multichoice, Coca-Cola and SAA, to mention a few.
With his strong business acumen and marketing background, Jason spearheaded the entertainment company GOLIATH AND GOLIATH – the brand soon became synonymous with South African comedy and won Comic’s Choice Awards – Best Friend of Comedy in 2015, ‘16 and ‘17.
Nicholas is currently the host of the hottest new Game show on eTV, Beat That Price.
He is a well-known stand-up comedian in South Africa, a sought after MC, an entertainer and an actor. As a qualified MC, he hosted many sales conferences for Vodacom, FNB, Standard Bank, Nissan and Liberty, just to mention a few.
Unassuming and sharp, Nicholas’ comedy is witty and dry but you could watch him for as long as he goes on, because of his natural boyish charm.
Donovan is a seasoned MC and former host of The Real Goboza, which is one of South Africa’s most watched television shows, with millions of viewers who tuned in each week to experience the unique entertainment style that he had to offer.
Some of the top clients that he serviced includes Vodacom, Standard Bank and Old Mutual, to name a few. He left his lucrative advertising job for a full-time career in comedy and his acts are based around insightful storytelling and simple truths by using various characters and impersonations, which he invents.
He is often referred to as ‘The Fresh Prince of Mthata’ – and he is exactly that – a prince, charming and ready to shower his audience with compliments. His comedy style is very diverse and FUNNY, of course – and his primary strength is that he’s a great impersonator.
