In keeping with gender binary norms and answering questions nobody asked, comedian Nelson de Gouveia fulfils his dream of disappointing his parents and wasting his friends’ time by writing a one-man comedy special called “Genuine Porra”, a one hour romp into how he handled mixing Portuguese, South African, English and American cultures into the wasteful miasma of a man he is today.

If you wanted to know how he dealt with living in the transition between dreamy suburban apartheid and chaotic suburban democracy, how the melting pot of Cape Town’s Portuguese community and religious dogma sent him scurrying up to Europe to discover himself in the mean streets of London, and how he returned to the country that never adopted him, then this special is for you.


Discover what his father means to him, how his mother considered him and who eventually decided to marry him. Where he realised his fallibility in his health and wealth, and how the “fish out of water” concept only applies to fish.
