Nik Rabinowitz was raised on the green streets of Constantia, Cape Town, a world of ride-bys, piano lessons, and unrelenting love and financial support from family members.

He grew up on a farm, climbing trees and commentating on his own rugby games in at least three of South Africa’s eleven official languages.

His stage career started in Standard One, when he played Moshe the Mosquito in a school play. “There were eight of us, but Mrs. Goldberg said I really stood out. She said that while the other boys just buzzed around, I really captured the complexity of Moshe”. After that Nik went to a Waldorf School, learning to play the treble recorder, plant veggie gardens, and crochet his own underpants.

Much later he almost became a surgeon. But the medical courses were full that year so Nik decided to take performing arts and see what would happen. The rest is history.

Over the past ten years Nik has established himself as one of the country’s premier comics, well known for his multilingual satire and passion for goats. He's produced and performed seven one man shows, presents "The Week that Wasn't" on Talk Radio 702 / Cape Talk, and plays a legion of characters for ZA News.

GRIFF has wanted to be a comedian since he was three years old where his mother use to set up the seniors in The Convalescent Homes where she worked, in an audience typesetting and let her son make sleeping and comatose old people laugh. So after working the Geriatric Circuit for a couple of summers his destiny was settled. Since then, that little funny boy with the faith of a PLANET has made a name for himself as one of the leading comedians and On-Air Personalities in the Country by headlining across North America (including Canada), New Zealand, The U.K. and Africa.


With his quick wit and unsurpassed knowledge for sports news, “GRIFF” took sports took sports to the ‘next level’ with his comedic twist on athletes and their stories. In 1999 he received Georgia’s Sportcaster of the Year Award and in 2004 “Street Skillz”, a program he provided the color commentary for was nominated for an EMMY.


Ultimately, GRIFF is a Comedian, an On-Air Personality, an Author, an Actor, a Motivational Speaker, a Daddy, an EMMY nominated Sportscaster and a man who puts Jesus Christ ahead of all men all wrapped into one.
