Stand up comic Nik Rabinowitz grew up on a farm in Africa, climbing trees and commentating on his own rugby games in three of South Africa’s eleven official languages. He 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.

Despite all this hardship he has still managed to be moderately successful, sporting a list of achievements the likes of which many can only aspire to. For instance, he once posed nude. Not because anyone asked him to, he just did it. Also, he represented South Africa at the Jewish Olympics, which is like the Special Olympics, with more accountants.

Nik Rabinowitz - Power Struggle

My latest production “Power Struggle” is a stand up slash theatre show directed by big time New York director Daniel Kutner. Unlike my previous shows, this one actually has a point. What is that point? The history of energy over the past 350 billion years and our struggle to come to terms with what we’ve done to the planet. I know it sounds depressing but we’ve taken that depressing, stressful, 350 billion year subject and packaged it into a delightful 90 minute hot box of hilarity for your viewing pleasure. If you think ‘global warming’ is just a fancy name for summer, this show might make you think – or it won’t, I seriously don’t care, so long as you laugh at my jokes.
