Goliath and Goliath have announced, The Other Goliath, the first one-man stand-up comedy show by Nicholas Goliath.

The show will debut on Thursday, September 5 and will run until Sunday, September 8 at the Melville Comedy Club at 20:00.

The Other Goliath will take fans on a journey through Nicholas’ life, looking at his career, marriage and the strange, and at times memorable things that have happened to him, in the most hilarious way.

As he recently celebrated eight years in comedy and will be performing the show on his birthday, an occasion not to be missed.

“To be honest, I just feel like I am finally ready to do an hour of my own and believe that I am in the right performance space. I also turn 35 this year and it just feels right,” says Nicholas.

Like any other industry, there are ways in which growth and development are measured. In comedy, a one-man show and the success thereof serves as an indicator.

“I think a one-man show is a great way to measure the quality of one's performance and material. It also creates the opportunity for you to record your material and see how many people would actually come out to see you, only... I'm so nervous all of a sudden,” affirms Nicholas.

Sometimes referred to as ‘the big one’ the ‘light one’ and ‘the other one’, the Goliath trio have often laughed when they are mistaken for one another in public. This soon became an inside joke between them and inspired the title for the show as Nicholas is affectionately and humorously called ‘The Other Goliath’.

The Other Goliath is going to be a night of learning about how Nicholas’ kids came into the world, as well as a few surprises that might include some tongue-in-cheek and dad jokes.
