Grab The Mic With Comedy Central

By  | 

I am a big fan of comedy, huge fan and for a while in Nigeria our comedy standards has really dropped. Bovi and Basketmouth have been the most consistent since like Night of a Thousand laugh days, I Go Dye lost momentum and AY sold himself to recruiting and then skits finally now fully into movies….and then we are left with a whole lot of forced recycled shows. Comedy shows in my country feels like concerts and just little laughs and recycled jokes.

In the Nigerian entertainment sector i believe the comic section needs to step up, which is probably why Comedy Central decided to launch this talent hunt looking for the next big international comedy star from Nigeria tagged ‘Grab The Mic’. We can produce the next Dave Chappelle, Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock etc. Comic star that can do a whole show without the need of musical acts or supporting comic partners and give us back really good laugh.

With Seyi Law as host, Comedy Central is planning a three part audition for comedians in Nigeria. Their hunt for the next big comedy act will take them to three states; Lagos, Port Harcourt and Jos where amateur comedians are encouraged to come out for a stand-up comedy session that could potentially change their life. Participants asides the immense recognition Comedy Central will provide, will also stand to win a 1.5 million naira grand prize along with a chance to share a stage with the reputed Ali Baba.
