the world famous comedian Basketmouth has emerged the first Nigerian to host comedy gig and TV show ‘Comedy Central Presents…Live at Parker’s’.
Basketmouth is expected to headline his own edition of the show in Johannesburg, SA on April 24, 2013 alongside well-known South African comedians.
He will sure be bringing his hilarious brand of comedy to the live gig at legendary comedy venue Parker’s Comedy & Jive, followed by a special telecast titled Comedy Central Presents Basketmouth Live at Parker’s.
‘I am really buzzed to be reppin’ for Naija at Comedy Central Presents…Live at Parker’s in April! So watch out: the Nigerian invasion has begun!’, Basketmouth told NET last week.
Launched just over 12 months ago, Comedy Central (DStv Channel 122) has successfully lured South Africa’s top comics into hosting its regular monthly stand-up gig.
Among the many brilliant funnymen and women to grace the stage at Parker’s Comedy & Jive have been Chris Forrest, Kurt Schoonraad, Tumi Morake, Al Prodgers, Joey Rasdien, Barry Hilton, Loyiso Gola, Tats Nkonzo and Stuart Taylor.
