PRESIDENT OBONJO

Last Minute Comedian Winner 2016

NATYS finalist 2016

Great Yorkshire Comedian of the Year Finalist 2016

Harrogate Comedian of the Year Finalist 2016

 

"President Obonjo has everything you’d expect of a tinpot African dictator: an Army uniform full of self-awarded medals and the forceful, booming rhetoric of a strong, if corrupt, leader. It’s a great comic construct, with lots of seized opportunities for playing with the cliches" (Chortle)

 

“Judging by the opening performance of the first Lafta Republic comedy show, this is one head of state who delivers what he promises " (Herts Advertiser)

SAJEELA KERSHI

WINNER AWA Awards for Arts & Culture (2015)

WINNER Argos Award for Artistic Excellence (2015)

Star of Edinburgh Award Winning Show (2007)

'Smart, funny with a mischievous glint' (The Times)

'Every fiber of Kershi's act exudes a perverse manic warmth' (USA Campus Central)

 

FRED FERENCZI

Silver Comedy Finalist 2016

"Ferenczi, pronounced Frenzy, could become quite the cult. He’s a dopey old duffer who you could imagine as one of the villagers in the Vicar of Dibley, though even more strange. He promises a ‘rollercoaster of gaiety and glee’ that his distracted absent-mindedness, nervously fiddling with tissues and bits of string, can’t hope to match." (Chortle)
