Stand up and “Grab The Mic” Nigeria, Comedy Central is coming for the next big comedian

The search is on

Since 2013 when Nigerian celebrity comedian, Basketmouth debuted for the whole country as a host on “Comedy Central Presents…Live at Parker’s”, Nigeria’s reputation for having good comics has grown. Popular act, Bovi also went on to feature on Comedy Central’s show in Johannesburg, South Africa two years later but the time has come for new acts to be discovered.
