Face For Radio


Face For Radio @ BAXTER THEATRE CONCERT HALL 10 – 15 September 2018

In association with Good Hope FM


Cape Town, It’s your last chance to see Dalin Oliver’s smash hit stand-up comedy show, Face for Radio, live. Oliver’s at the Baxter Theatre Concert Hall for a back by popular demand run following a successful nationwide tour in 2017.  He is excited for the final stint in his hometown after racking up laughs and rave reviews all over the country; from Port Elizabeth, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban and the National Arts Festival.


The former high school mathematics and history teacher from Retreat is a familiar voice to mother city locals on South Africa’s oldest commercial music and lifestyle radio station, Good Hope FM, where he dons the hat of Sports Presenter on the weekday Breakfast Show. He is also one half of the Stations weekly comedy show , Happy Hour,  which  is into its second year as the first dedicated weekday daytime comedy show on a Cape Town based commercial radio station. It’s a two for one special at absolutely no cost every Monday from 11am – 12pm, with Oliver and fellow Comedian Carl Weber providing an essential dose of laughter that will make your day 50 shades lighter.


Face For Radio has one of SA’s favourite comedian’s, Stuart Taylor, in the Director’s chair. The duo established a successful relationship during Dalin’s debut one man show I Came, I Taught, I Left, which too was a sell out success at the Baxter Theatre.  The show has a fairly nostalgic feeling, with Oliver reflecting on life 10 years after matriculating. From tales about his French Heritage, to the discovery of the concept of a play date when moving from a non-model c to a model c school and epic days at schools sports, Oliver is guaranteed to take you on a hilarious trip down memory lane.


The 29 year old started his on-stage journey in 2010 and has not looked back. He’s one of the rising stars of the South African comedy scene and has captured audiences with his clean cut energetic brand of comedy that has been described as easily accessible, nostalgic and diverse in the best kind of way. Career highlights including being featured on Comedy Central Africa, writing, producing and performing two one man shows, releasing his DVD for I Came, I Taught I Left, making his big screen debut in cinemas nationwide as one of the lead actors in SA action comedy Finders Keepers and being one of the featured acts at the Jive Cape Town Funny Festival as well as the opening act for industry stalwarts such as Riaad Moosa, Barry Hilton, Stuart Taylor and Nik Rabinowitz.


So what can Cape Town audiences expect in Face For Radio? It’s simple. Pop around to hear his stories. If you don’t, he’ll only have family members attending and they would want complimentary tickets. We don’t want that now do we. Seriously though. He’s mom says the show is “lit” and a must see!
