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 - Late Bloomer

Hi, I’m 43 year old comedian Nik Rabinowitz.

Apparently we’re in a recession, but according to my brother in law the only thing that’s receding is my hair line. And my dreams of becoming a professional sportsman.

Despite this, I’ve managed to find the confidence to put on a new show, where I cover my bald spot, and a number of other things. Like how you shouldn’t get your first skateboard at 42, and what you can find out from a DNA test. Spoiler alert: It’s A LOT.

Late Bloomer is on at the Baxter Theatre from November 26, and it’s really funny.

How do I know that?

Look, I’m biased. But historically it’s gone well.
