With K10,000 for a standard ticket or K20,000 for a VIP one, you can buy yourself the rare opportunity to mingle with BasketMouth, one of Africa’s most known comics, next month as he is scheduled to stage a show the Capital Lilongwe.
Born Bright Okpocha in Lagos, Nigeria, BasketMouth is listed as one of the funniest people in Africa by CNN. He studied Sociology and Anthropology in the University of Benin.
He is an accomplished Comedian, Actor and entrepreneur, having hosted his own show on MTV Base, called The Big Friday Show which was a big success and won the best TV Show in 2013.
He picked the stage name “Basketmouth” because he just speaks his mind unfiltered, without holding anything back – just like how a literal basket doesn’t hold water.
He has headlined shows in multiple African countries such as Ghana, Kenya and South Africa.
BasketMouth became a darling among many in the country following his ‘There are Two Things Involved’ skit. This is the first time he is coming to Malawi.
