Dalin Oliver – Radio Presenter

The former high school mathematics and history teacher from Retreat is a familiar voice to mother city locals on South Africa’s oldest commercial music and lifestyle radio station, Good Hope FM, where he dons the hat of Sports Presenter on the weekday Breakfast Show. He is also one half of the Stations weekly comedy show, Happy Hour, which is into its second year as the first dedicated weekday daytime comedy show on a Cape Town based commercial radio station. It’s a two for one special at absolutely no cost every Monday from 11am – 12pm, with Oliver and fellow Comedian Carl Weber providing an essential dose of laughter that will make your day 50 shades lighter.

The Director

Face For Radio has one of SA’s favourite Comedian’s, Stuart Taylor, in the Director’s chair. The duo established a successful relationship during Dalin’s debut one man show I Came, I Taught, I Left, which too was a sell-out success at the Baxter Theatre. The show has a fairly nostalgic feeling, with Oliver reflecting on life 10 years after matriculating. From tales about his French Heritage, to the discovery of the concept of a play date when moving from a non-model c to a model c school and epic days at schools’ sports, Oliver is guaranteed to take you on a hilarious trip down memory lane.

Comedy Journey

The 29-year-old started his on-stage journey in 2010 and has captured audiences with his clean cut energetic brand of comedy that has been described as easily accessible, nostalgic and diverse in the best kind of way. Career highlights including being featured on Comedy Central Africa, writing, producing and performing two one man shows, releasing his DVD for I Came, I Taught I Left, making his big screen debut in cinemas nationwide as one of the lead actors in SA action comedy Finders Keepers and being one of the featured acts at the Jive Cape Town Funny Festival as well as the opening act for industry stalwarts such as Riaad Moosa, Barry Hilton, Stuart Taylor and Nik Rabinowitz.

Face For Radio – What to Expect

So what can Cape Town audiences expect in Face For Radio? It’s simple. Pop around to hear his stories. If you don’t, he’ll only have family members attending and they would want complimentary tickets. We don’t want that now do we.

On a serious note. His mom says the show is “lit” and a must see!

Face For Radio Poster


Dalin is a Cape Town-born qualified teacher-turned-comedian as well as the Host of Happy Hour on Good Hope FM. His passion for the performing arts was triggered in 2010 when he won the UCT leg of Good Hope FM’s Campus DJ Search. A few months later the comedy bug bit and the qualified high school Mathematics and History teacher ditched the chalkboard for a microphone and the stage. The 29-year-old is one of the rising stars of the South African comedy scene and is one to keep an eye out for.
