As a comedian, Jaryd Pillay introduced his charm offensive to a loving crowd in Cape Town four years ago, and hasn't looked back since. The young entertainer narrates his unique life with flare and unbridled confidence, taking on personal subjects like being mugged by clowns and looking like the main character from Life of Pi, that seem surreal to many and hilarious to all.
Jaryd has had the privilege of sharing stages with some of his comedic heroes in venues all over the country. He's performed at Rocking The Daisies 2014 and 2016 and is the winner of the #ThatsFunny comedy competition in 2015. In 2015 he also performed his debut at the Soweto Theatre in the Savanna Newcomer Showcase. In 2016 he was also a finalist in Comedy Central’s Grab The Mic competition. Along with stand-up, Jaryd has achieved a BA degree in Live Performance at The South African School Of Live Performance and Motion Picture Medium, AFDA, where he further developed and honed his skills as a performer.
With rugged good looks and an infectious nature, you can be sure of a great time when witnessing him successfully navigating the turbulent waters of crowd moods and amazing comic timing.
