for a Funny, Funny, Funny Show!
Nik grew up on a farm in Plumstead West (a.k.a. Constantia) where he learnt to climb trees, make pots and speak Xhosa. Things seemed to be going to plan (for his Jewish Mother) when he graduated from UCT with Honours in Business Science, but then the young man travelled Africa with a theatre company and a herd of donkeys and it all went a little pear-shaped.
Familiar to TV viewers as the off the wall multi-lingual presenter of SABC 1’s Coca-Cola Megamillions Gameshow and the lycra bodysuit clad M-Web big black box guy, Nik’s comedy work includes appearances at Vodacom’s Funny Festivals, stand-up gigs in London and at the Edinburgh Festival, as well as three outrageous one man stand-up shows, The Life and Times of Klasie Kakpraat, Anyone seen My Goat? and most recently One Man One Goat.
From whacky stand-up comic to high profile MC, Nik has performed for corporates, government and NGOs across Southern Africa. He’s starred in numerous local and international TV commercials, and recorded an abundance of voice work.
With an impressive grasp of multiple languages, and a passion for connecting people and cultures, Nik is establishing himself as an outstanding and unique South African entertainer.
