Fresh-faced and with a fresh approach, Dillan has grown from a novice to making waves nationally in what seems like a few short years.
Dillan makes for great viewing, his static stage presence makes his unnervingly clever jokes accessible to everyone and not only makes you laugh but think as well. A casual, reserved customer off stage, Dillan’s professional approach to his art, belies his short but full career to date.
Dillan is, refreshingly, without the many “copy and paste” tags associated with young acts still learning their trade. The command of his style and his approach to his art was rewarded with two accolades; He was named winner of the Newcomer of the Year Award at the Annual SA Comic’s Choice Awards for 2012.
The other a much sought after opening spot in South Africa’s best-selling comedy tour of all time, ‘Trevor Noah’s – That’s Racist’. Dillan has also appeared on the Blacks Only stage numerous occasions and headlined at Parkers Comedy and Jive, Africa’s premium comedy club. He has made appearances on television in ‘L.O.L’ – a Multichoice commissioned show, Comedy Central and ‘Late Night News with Loyiso Gola’ on e.TV showing he is more than a one-trick pony
