As if that wasn’t enough, the spectacle will be hosted by KZN favourite and multiple South African comedy award winner, Carvin H Goldstone.
“I’ve known Rory since he first arrived in Durban to join ECR and add his PE flavour to the Durban Comedy scene. His growth has been phenomenal from a support act to an award-winning comedian. We travelled together to the Comics Choice Awards this year where Rory was a winner, so I do feel a part of his journey in many ways. It’s a very proud moment to host his first ever one man show in Durban. It’s overdue. He’s made a name for himself on TikTok and Facebook and those followers are in for a treat,”
“Carol is the Queen of Daytime Radio and the most dynamic radio personality in the province with seemingly no bound to her talent. Podcasting, voice-overs, MC – she does it all. But clearly for Carol, all is not enough, because she’s now entering the brutal and rewarding world of stand-up comedy. She’s got the charisma, stage presence and confidence, so I’m looking forward to her pairing all of that with the jokes. It’s going to be an afternoon to remember!”
“I love the people of Durban so much and I’ve been doing comedy here for about nine years so it was definitely about time and The Barnyard at Suncoast is my favourite venue in KZN, so it all just fell into place,”
“When I was thinking about an opening act, I remembered Carol once said she wanted to ‘try comedy sometime’, so I gave her no choice! I’m so excited for this show! And, as for Carvin as our host, it was a no-brainer for me. I’ve learned so much from him over the years and I love the guy!”
Carol Ofori adds
“I’m nervous as hell, but excited for my comedic debut! I’ve always secretly wanted to give comedy a try and I feel so honoured that Rory has allowed me to come shine with him on one of the biggest days in his comedy career.”
