Photos: Comedian Waris And Other Comedians Thrill Fans At The Easter Comedy Show.



It was a night of humour and quality entertainment when events organization company, Event Factory Ghana Limited in collaboration with First National Bank comficted top notch Ghanaian, South African and Nigerian comedians on stage for the annual Easter Comedy Show.

Hosted by OB Amponsah, there was full of laughter at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) auditorium in Accra , Ghana on Saturday night, as the programme which was held in Accra brought together some of the well dressed comedians on the continent, including Ghana’s Comdian Waris, OB Amponsah and Hogan, Nigeria’s Akpo Roro and Senator alongside, South Africa’s Mhpo Popps.

Comedian Waris, had a good reception from patrons of the show who could not conceal their laughter. He put up a spectacular performance at the programme. One of his jokes which got the audience in stitches was about how Ghanaians ask some silly and unwarranted questions, detailing it out that, Ghanaians undistordedly see him sitting, yet they proceed to ask “are you sitting?” Which he replied “No, I am jumping”.

When South African comedian, Mhpo Popps, mounted the stage, his South African ascent wasn’t barrier to deliver an awe-inspiring performance last night at the Easter comedy show. He touched on real life issues that left patrons rolling on the floor in search of a laughing space. He distinguished between an urban and rural mice, explaining that, Urban mice are only only interested in cheese whiles, rural mice gallivent looking for newspapers, Bibles, documents, and decomposed products just to feed on.

The night also witnessed some amazing musical performances from top Ghanaian musicians, including Akwaboah who with his artistry prowess was able to command the patrons in the auditorium to sing along during his extremely ominous performance. Couples or Lovers on the night had a glimpse of his soul soothing voice synchronized with love tunes.

Kidi also got some slot to entertain the most of the reserved audience who were present on the night. He created a cool ambience for the patrons after performing most of his hit songs such as, Mr Bad Man, Odo, Thunder Fire. Patch Bay Band was soo onpoint on the night as well. They were able to hit original key notes of the studio recorded song they performed.

Nigerians are best known for this comic craft, and yes! Indeed, comedian Senator kept the Nigerian comedy flag high after delivering a sensational craft last night. He was really in his element as he served the audience great comedy. He emphasised on how Ghana Police Service has upgraded from taking physical bribes and has introduced the Mobile money system. If a motorist is being arrested, they give you their Mobile Money number you deliver a smooth transaction.

The MC for the night who doubles as a comedian, OB Amponsah was also phenomenal! He maintained the standard he set right from the priminary stage of the show. The articulateness of his artistry was a rib cracking one. He engaged the audience in his performances, precisely calling couples up stage to sing a melodious song for each other. That alone was worth a joke because, the performance of some spouse can’t be written home about.

Comedian Hogan is such as an amazing talent. Contrary to the perception people have about jokes and comedies, Hogan with his performance explains it that, comedies or jokes are not always full of fiction. He gave a realistic and classical example on how some Police officers stops to query a guy riding in his fully air-conditioned vehicle, they end up sitting in the air-conditioned car, telling the driver that, they want to enjoy the cool breeze in the car because, the sun is scorching.

Nigeria’s Akpo Roro has proven to the world that when it comes to stand up comedy shows, his name can’t be erased off the memories of his previous audience. He is an amazing and was one of the best performers on the night. Before he signed out of his performance, he jokingly quizzed a lady why she wasn’t laughing over the night, which he stated that, whether the patrons like it or not, there are no more performance coming up on the night so, its either they laugh or assume they’ve waisted their money.

Every billed performer on the night left something on the lips of patrons, including media men, to talk about before the next edition is being stagged. The continental comedians performed to meet the recquired standard. Everyone present in the auditorium was fully satisfied because, they enjoyed every bit of the show.

If this Easter Comedy Show is something to write about, then we can boldly say that, Ghana’s stand up comedy has come to stay forever, as audience has already rated it to be the best show in the year.
