Stand-up comic Nik Rabinowitz returns to the Baxter Concert Hall from 26 November with his latest special, Late Bloomer. South Africa’s original Xhosa-speaking, Jewish leg-spinner-turned-comedian’s new stand-up show gets under his skin, literally, as he ruminates over his recent DNA test results and a host of other pressing issues in his hilarious, inimitable and insensitive manner. Join Nik as he tries to figure out who he is, where he came from, where he’s going, and how he ended up here, with a wife, three kids, two animals, one mortgage and the vague feeling that he should pack up everything and move back to Lithuania. A former Stand Up of the Year winner, Nik has over the past 18 years established himself as one of the country’s premier comics. He’s toured internationally, including Nigeria, the Netherlands, Australia, Canada, the United States of America (USA) and the United Kingdom (UK), where he’s appeared at The Royal Albert Hall, on BBC 2’s Mock the Week, and outside a bar in Bristol in 1993 which he couldn’t get into.Late Bloomer runs until 14 December at the Baxter Concert Hall, Tuesdays to Saturdays at 20:00.
