In this episode, I talk to the wonderful character comedian, BENJAMIN BANKO BELLO AKA PRESIDENT OBONJO about his comedy career.
Comedian Bello created President Obonjo, an inflated self-centred dictator pf the Lafta Republic, feigning to find easy solutions delivered on stage with mocking accuracy, amusement, and susceptibility. Obonjo has been a very successful standing-up comedian winning Luton Comedian of the Year, Runner-Up at Great Yorkshire Fringe and was a finalist in the Naty New Act of the year in 2016.
I have seen President Obonjo live on stage for Old Comedian of The Year in London in 2015, his solo show President Obonjo Stole My Identity at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2015, online for Beefy’s Comedy Club in 2020 and then live again at The Hastings Comedy Fringe in 2021.
