The Comedy Bar on Friday 20th December 2019

President Obonjo.

In the age of Trump, populism and Brexit, the world probably doesn’t need another bloated ego pretending to give easy solutions. Thankfully what we need is a comedy character who skewers them with precision, hilarity and who isn't afraid at showing vulnerability.

What the 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.”
