David Newton

“One of South Africa’s superstar comedians”- Times.

Nominated for ‘Stand-up Comic Of The Year’ at the South Africa Comedy Award 2007 (Trevor Noah - ‘Best New Comer’).

David Newton’s meteoric rise in South Africa’s comedy world came as a result of pioneering four, self-written, produced and shot comedy specials in just 8 years… earning him critical acclaim including The National Arts Festival’s ‘Best Comedian’ winner 2009 & ‘Golden Ovation’ award 2010 and Speaker’s Inc.’s ‘Best Entertainer Award’ 2010. David was a special selection for the Cape Town International Comedy Festival (alongside international comics from USA, UK & Australia, including Reggie Watts & Pablo Francisco) and re invited the following year.

David Newton went on to present the reality TV show ‘The Couch Trip’ for two seasons before getting his green card and heading to LA.

In his four years in LA, David has toured the United States and performed on all of LA’s big stages alongside Dane Cook, Chris D’Elia, Christopher Titus (opened for his ‘Neverlution’ tour) and Alonso Boden to name a few.  Outside of his busy comedy schedule, he managed to pull of parts in three feature films in 2014 including Clint Eastwood’s ‘Jersey Boys’.
