Comedian Carven Goldstone heads for the big screen

Hot off the heels of his international tour, popular comedian, Carvin Goldstone, steps off the stage and “in front” of the big screen!

A new venture, NuMetro Cinemas and Carvin have teamed up to bring live comedy to the movie theatre.

“The plan is to introduce live comedy at movie theatres around the country in partnership with NuMetro” explained Carvin, “The idea is to have regular comedy nights at Numetro moving forward. This is something we spoke about earlier this year and we’re happy to finally be launching it.

Dubbed NuMetro Comedy Nights, the venture will see a host of one-man and one-woman shows, ensemble lineups, and themed standup comedy shows take place over the next year.

“There is a great demand for fresh, accessible standup comedy in South Africa. This initiative ticks all the boxes in terms of bringing fresh talent and comedy content to a highly accessible stage,” said Carvin.

“Eventually we’d like to roll out the comedy in NuMetro cinemas across the country. So together with Numetro, this is a good test to see how the market responds to hosting stand up comedy in a movie theater. We thought it was a great fit. Movie theatres have tiered / cinema-style seating, it’s an intimate space and perfect for comedy. So we are really hoping the public jumps on this because it’s going to be something new, something fresh and something for everyone to enjoy,” he said.

But, offering a taste of the funny to come in the 2019, the NuMetro Comedy Nights launch event will see Carvin performing a one man show of new and recent ideas from his tours around the world.

Carvin is one of the biggest names in South African Comedy. His recent accomplishments include winning Comics Choice Comedian of the Year (2018) – considered the “Oscars” of SA Comedy. Previous winners include Trevor Noah and Loyiso Gola.

A well travelled international act Carvin has performed in the United Kingdom, Middle East, Australia, New Zealand and across Southern Africa, including Swaziland and Zimbabwe. This includes being invited to perform The Magners International Comedy Festival – the biggest comedy festival in Asia – and The Melbourne International Comedy Festival – the third largest comedy festival in the world! These tours took place in 2018.
