Poignant, insightful, wickedly funny. Jason Goliath’s new one-man show promises these and more!

"Insightful, poignant, motivational, inspiring, and wickedly funny." This is among the best descriptions so far doing the rounds on Twitter following the opening of Jason Goliath's new sensational one-man show, 'Dala What You Must' - currently on show at the Theatre on The Square in Sandton City.

Dala What You Must, It Is What It Is‘ is the name of Jason Goliath’s new sensational one-man comedy set to dazzle Johannesburg audiences this November.

The new show is a follow-up to Jason’s highly motivational 2019 comedy stand-up, ‘Manstruation: Surviving a Wife’, and is currently available on Showmax.

On until Sunday, November 27, ‘Dala What You Must, It Is What It Is’ is inspired by the one, most important word the Joburg-born comedian grasped during lockdown; ‘acceptance’ and will include unfiltered, never-before-heard anecdotes about his life, his journey, uncomfortable truths and how he learnt ‘to dala (do)’ what he had to, to persevere. 

Through his commanding stage presence, with this show, Jason hopes to not only entertain his audience, but share his experience of overcoming lockdown and offer palpable solutions to everyday stressors.

“The realisation that nobody is going to bed worried about my debit orders, my lifestyle or my problems, means I have to hold myself accountable and responsible. This also means the only way to achieve my dreams is to accept where and what I am and do what I have to do. Dala (do) what you must, because it is what it is,” he says.

Commenting on the objective of his new style of comedy, which fans will be exposed to in the show, he says that although the show is as educational as it is funny, the ultimate goal is to make people laugh. “Funny first, always!

“I curate my stories so that they have relatable messaging and messages that in some way, shape or form will impact someone. Will the whole show impact everybody? No. The objective is for one part of the show to impact a few, for others to leave with something, and for all to leave having a good laugh,” affirms Jason.

Fans can expect relatable comedy that is playful, high energy and informative.

The award-winning comedian lives by the mantra, “chase your happy” which translates through the messaging of ‘Dala What You Must’, which is, ‘there’s no time for excuses, inadequacy or mediocrity’.

Fans can expect relatable comedy that is playful, high energy and informative, diving deep into Jason’s way of thinking, his experiences and how he navigates difficult situations. 

“Take this show as an opportunity to get out of the house, rekindle with old friends or take a break from the kids. But more importantly, come and share what you have been going through and see that you are not alone…. all this, while laughing,” reads a statement from organisers, as  plans are underway to extend the show to Cape Town, Durban, Gqeberha and more.
