In a time where it’s uncertain on when you’ll be able to go watch your favourite comedian on stage again, you’ll find that being home is actually not such “A Lonely Place”! Dillan Oliphant, better known for his flawless delivery of unique dead-pan one-liner comedy, makes for great viewing in his first Showmax comedy special, In A Lonely Place, which premieres on the 18th of May, 2020.
Entering in his 10th year on the comedy scene, Dillan’s laidback and nonchalant stage presence coupled with his unnervingly clever jokes, makes him a firm fan-favourite.
Filmed in front of a live audience at the Melrose Comedy Club, In A Lonely Place, sees Dillan taking to the stage as he retells stories about growing up in his hometown, Eldorado Park, and becoming a man in the township. He puts the spotlight on his own mental and emotional state.
“People can relate to what I speak about. Things that have happened in my personal life, things that I’m passionate about. You might not be able to see me live on stage, but that doesn’t mean you can’t laugh along with me,” says Dillan.
In A Lonely Place marks Oliphant’s second stand-up comedy special, following Oliphant In The Room which aired on DStv in 2018. While nothing compares to experiencing Dillan’s dry humour live on stage, the comedy special will certainly bring you a bit closer.
To stream In A Lonely Place from Showmax you will need a smartphone or smart TV, an internet connection and an active Showmax subscription.
