Nik Rabinowitz

Comedian and MC - Cape Town
Nik Rabinowitz


Achieving fame as the world's foremost Xhosa-speaking Jewish comedian despite all hardships is what it took to be moderately successful.

His stage career started in Standard One, where he played Moshe the Mosquito in a school play. “There were eight of us, but Mrs. Goldberg said I really stood out. She said that while the other boys just buzzed around, I really captured the complexity of Moshe”. After that Nik went to a Waldorf School, learning to play the treble recorder, plant veggie gardens, and crochet his own underpants.

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

Much later he almost became a surgeon, yet medical courses were full that year so Nik decided to take performing arts and see what would happen and so the rest is history.

Over the past ten years Nik has established himself as one of the country’s premier comics, well known for his multilingual satire and passion for goats. Producing and performing in seven one man shows, presenting "The Week that Wasn't" on Talk Radio 702 / Cape Talk, and plays a legion of characters for ZA News.

Aside from all this, Nik’s major claim to fame is that he was born in a stable, and is one of only two Jewish boys in the last two thousand years to have done so.
