Bio

Nik Rabinowitz is a South African stand-up comedian and author best known for his talk radio show The Week That Wasn't and for playing a variety of characters on the satirical puppet show ZANews.

Rabinowitz was raised in Constantia, Cape Town and grew up on a farm and speaks three of South Africa's eleven official languages describing himself as "the world's foremost Xhosa-speaking Jewish comedian".

He matriculated from Westerford High School and despite an early leaning towards studying medicine he opted for stand-up comedy instead. He graduated from the University of Cape Town in 1999 with a Bachelor of Business Science degree.

Over the years Nik has established himself as one of the country's premier comics, well known for his multilingual satire. He's produced and performed numerous one man shows, presents The Week that Wasn't on Talk Radio 702 / Cape Talk, and plays a legion of characters for ZANews.

Nik appeared in an episode of the British show Mock the Week and has acted in several feature films including Screenplay, The Deal, I Now Pronounce You Black and White, Material and Copposites.

He was also a presenter on SABC, where he presented the Coca-Cola Megamillions Gameshow. In 2013 he was the co-host (with Connie Ferguson) of the 7th Annual South African Film and Television (SAFTA) Awards.

In 2017 he partnered chef Hezron Louw to tour the country in search of the most unique and interesting braai experiences South Africa has to offer, in the SABC3 foodie travel series Tyres and Braaiers.

Nik has been married to Debbie Rabinowitz since 9 December, 2007 and the couple have a son, born in 2012. They currently reside in Cape Town.
