Comedians are taking Melrose Arch to another level

Melrose Arch has been more entertaining since the opening of the Roast Café and the Goliath Comedy Club.

This unique dual-experience and entertainment spot was launched last year November by Goliath and Goliath, the comedic siblings, in association with The Venue.

The Goliath siblings – Jason, Donovan, Nicholas and Kate, have been working actively since the launch, with the aim of making Roast Café and the Goliath Comedy Club one of the Africa’s premium comedy and lifestyle venues.

Gugu Mhlungu and Wasanga Mehana were joined by the two Goliath brothers, Nicholas and Jason Goliath to chat about their adventure.

Listen to their conversation below...

The coffee shop is no joke, it's run by one of our business partners. So, the experience is instead of a coffee shop being a joke it's a space that makes you happy. Everything is designed to around happiness as the focal point.

Jason Goliath, comedian

It was part of the plan, but we never expected it to happen as soon as it did. Janson and I started five years ago. But, starting as a comedian, it's always a dream to have your own space that has your name on the door. It's just absolutely amazing.

Jason Goliath, comedian

We're just aiming at making the best quality. We don't have a massive range but what we do have is some of the best coffee in the market which is unbelievable.
