Originally hailing from Barbados and based in South London, Sikisa made her Always Be Comedy debut at an online show in June and September 2020. The comedian was also the very first act to appear live for the comedy club when it returned after five months of lock down due to the worldwide pandemic.
I also saw the comedian on a bill for Live @ Limehouse and also online for Vix Leyton’s Comedy Arcade in October 2020. The comic was extremely confident and honest with vibrant views and experiences of lockdown.
In 2020, Sikisa compered the Stand Up 4 Women Xmas Edition which was a socially distanced comedy show in aid of Solace Women’s Aid – a charity exiting to end harm done through domestic and sexual violence. The MC commanded the stage and easily engaged with the audience who related to her funny stories before she introduced the all-female bill.
Sikisa returned to Always Be Comedy Online that I watched in March 2021. She had effortless skill in making the audience laugh as she delivered fifteen minutes of quality material.
In June 2021, compere James Gill celebrated his birthday online at Always Be Comedy Online. An amazing line up of surprise comedians including Sikisa gave a no-holds-barred tribute ‘roast’ to the great man. The show was one of the funniest ninety-minutes of the year.
I went to see the comedian’s solo show Bad Guy at The Brighton Fringe live in June 2021. Extremely sassy, confident, and looking relaxed on stage she performed with such gusto and delivered the funny and honest story with wit and humour that it was difficult not to enjoy. She also performed part of the set live at Always Be Comedy in July 2021.
In February 2022, Sikisa made an excellent guest compere for Always Be Comedy live and then again as a guest live on stage as well as delivering a preview show online in May 2022. She was effortlessly funny creating comedy from chatting with the audience and new material about enjoying life was particularly impressive.
I was delighted to see the comedian on the bill at the new Always Be Comedy venue at Sambrook’s Brewery in Wandsworth in September 2022 and then as support for Kiri Pritchard McLean on her Home Truths tour at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London in November 2022. Having had success with her solo show Life of The Party at the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2022, she was confident, inspired, and hilarious in front of the audiences effortlessly chatting about her party style and love of life.
The comic made an excellent compere for the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year show that I saw at the Leicester Comedy Festival in February 2023, and headlined 21 Soho Presents in May 2023.
Sikisa gets better and better every time I watch her on stage, and I wish her continued success.
