For One Night Only: One Man, Four Cultures, Tons Of Laughs
Catch comedian Nelson de Gouveia’s first one man show about his dad's approval, marriage and staying “normal” while upholding multiple cultures
Cape Town-based, Portuguese comedian Nelson de Gouveia is bringing his very first one-man show, Genuine Porra, to the Station on Bree on Tuesday 27 August 2019.
Hear his entertaining stories on how he mixed four different cultures to become who he is today.
A MELTING POT
The 39-year-old Portuguese comedian will be taking his audience on a one hour romp, talking about how he mixed Portuguese, South African, English and American culture while still remaining “a normal person”.
De Gouveia tells the story of how he dealt with living in the transition between suburban apartheid and democracy, how the Cape Town Portuguese community and religious dogma sent him to Europe to find himself in London, and how he returned to South Africa.
He entertains the crowd with what his father means to him and who decided to marry him.
He will also discuss fulfilling his dreams of disappointing his parents and wasting his friends time with his one-man comedy special.
De Gouveia is a full-time video game producer who also writes scripts and does film sketches. He performs open mic nights across the city and has been described as "a solid little opener".
He was born in Venezuela to Portuguese parents, grew up in South Africa and spent 12-years living in London.
