The Breakfast Podcast

Comedy /

Kagiso Mokgadi, Yaaseen Barnes and Dalin Oliver host The Breakfast Podcast daily at the National Arts Festival. The award-winning comedians catch up with other artists performing at the festival, chat about their shows and experiences as well as the daily happenings like bumping into donkeys at the pedestrian crossing and getting lost in potholes at night. Let’s be honest, we all missed each other. So re-connecting with morning banter and laughs over a lekker cup of coffee with artists from different creative walks of life is the perfect way to get the day started.


written, performed and produced by Dalin Oliver, Kagiso Mokgadi and Yaaseen Barnes


Yaaseen Barnes has been lauded with two of South Africa’s highest comedy accolades: the Savanna Comic’s Choice Award for Best Newcomer, and the Intermediate Comic of the Year award. He was singled out as one of The Mail and Guardian’s Top 200 Youth in 2016.

Kagiso ‘KG’ Mokgadi is the quintessential comedy heavyweight. Influenced by the comedy greats and touted by his colleagues as a joke writing genius, this multiple award-winning stand-up comedian will have you laughing from deep within your belly.

Dalin Oliver, a teacher turned comedian, grabbed the mic and left the classroom, pension and all the benefits for the thrill of the stage and a well delivered punchline. The award-winning comedian’s clean cut, energetic and charming brand of comedy has been described as easily accessible, nostalgic and diverse in the best kind of way.
