A mixed Jew, Zulu, Indian and American, Carvin H Goldstone is one of South Africa's most successful stand up comedians, he has been  nominated as South African Comics Choice Comedian of the year in 2016 and 2017.

Carvin's unique no-swearing style of stand-up has intrigued comedy and non-comedy lovers alike. Sharp, witty, animated and a master of impersonation, Carvin talks about South Africa and its bizarre politics, his travels around the world, his experiences being of multiple races and family politics. He has toured Australia as a solo act and returns with a show that looks at life being the 'other South African comedian' in a world that only has enough time for one famous African comic.

Basically Carvin is well known as a poor man's Trevor Noah. And sometimes just a poor man. And most times just poor. Carvin has three sold out one man shows and three comedy specials. Featured on Comedy Central Africa and voted in the top 5 African comics to watch on YouTube. Carvin's unique ancestry has blessed him with a wealth of funny topics to explore in his comedy.  Calvin regularly sells out theatres back home in South Africa with both old and young attending his comedy show.
