President Obonjo of Lafta Republic has been performing stand-up comedy since 2010. The President is a comedy character, whose set combines political and personal story lines (drawing on his alter ego’s experiences and influences as a British Nigerian), the impact of Social media on his life, and the nonsense of modern life. He is a bit of a charmer in his Field Marshal’s uniform!
President Obonjo is a hard-working, reliable, creative comedian - in demand as a high-energy, extrovert, warm and natural act and compere.
“Obonjo’s future is bright in the comedy world, it is blinding. “Geoff Schumann
“Extremely talented comic, and has a bright future in the comedy scene.” Ron Hollingsworth
"Judging by the opening performance of the first Lafta Republic comedy show, this is one head of state who delivers what he promises.” Herts Advertiser
“President Obonjo has been an act and compere at three of my pro/ semi-pro comedy nights, returning by popular demand; he is at home in a rural pub as in a posh town theatre. Audiences love his charm, cheekiness and unique take on life as a ‘comedy dictator! Book him before he’s famous!” Fred Ferenczi
“Brilliantly crafted....” Chris Hall
“The President is a spectacle and should not be missed, you will be blown away by his energy of this well established comedian, and he became my President that night.” Dave Greaves
