He has also established himself as South Africa’s top Jewish, Xhosa-speaking comedian. From stand-up comic to high profile MC, he has made appearances at the Vodacom Comedy Festival in Cape Town and has performed successful stand up gigs at both the London and Edinburgh Festivals. You Can’t be Serious and Has anyone seen my Goat? are two of his most recognised acts.
His gentle, observational comedy makes the most of his language talents. He appears mainly as himself but is a natural for alter ego characters, particularly middle-aged Jewish ladies and excitable Xhosa commentators.
Rabinowitz is mainly seen on stage alone, but has also teamed up with two other top South African comedians, Marc Lottering and Riaad Moosa, for the sell out runs of Three Wise Men and its sequel, both directed by the veteran David Kramer. He is also a key writer for South Africa’s top satirical TV show, ZA News, for which he contributes the voices for Desmond Tutu, Peter de Villiers, Benni McCarthy, Carlos Perreira and others.
