Dalin’s passion for the performance arts was triggered in 2010 when he won the UCT leg of Good Hope FM’s Campus DJ Search.

2018 led to an exciting new project where had the pleasure of collaborating and touring the country with fellow Comedians Yaaseen Barnes, Carl Weber and Kagiso Mokgadi in one of the hottest four man stand-up comedy shows of the  year; Day Zero: The Water Shortage Tour.

Dalin is not only a familiar voice to mother city locals on Good Hope FM, he is fast becoming a familiar face as one of the rising stars on the South African Comedy scene.
