———————————————————————-
President Obonjo is a successful five-starred stand-up
comedian. As the larger-than-life- uber-confident, self-
appointed, side-splitting dictator of ‘Lafta Republic’,
President Obonjo has quietly been leading a comedy
revolution to become the first President to take over the
comedy industry by storm.

He has been creating rumblings by storming New Act
competitions including winning Luton Comedian of the Year,
Runner-Up at Great Yorkshire Fringe and was a finalist in
the Natys, New Act of the Year competition 2016. His
previous solo show President Obonjo Stole My Identity was
performed in 2015 at Bath Comedy Festival, Brighton
Fringe and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals in 2015 and 2017 to
packed crowds and critical acclaim. His latest show the
Rise of the Comedy Dictator was performed at Edinburgh
Fringe Comedy Festival in 2017 and at Leicester Comedy
Festival in 2018. President Obonjo supported Reginald D
Hunter at the Aberdeen Comedy Festival in 2018.

What the UK press have said:
“It’s a great comic construct, with lots of seized
opportunities for playing with the clichés” – Steve Bennett,
Chortle

“There was the potential of that high-status, comedy
bomb-proof kind of character that Alexis Dubus has created
so successfully with Marcel Lucont.” – Ben Veneables,
Londonist

“This hour-long show was a revelation… Not at all what I
was expecting.” – John Fleming

“On the face of it, it works as a well-crafted political
comedy, exposing how the world has treated Africa and left
much of it to suffer corrupt governments led by the likes of
Obonjo. But it’s the layers of context that really make this
a fascinating, bewildering and painfully funny experience.”
– ☆☆☆☆☆ Fringe Guru
