Michael J Dolan tour dates
Daliso is a versatile African comedian equally comfortable talking politics, romance, filth or religion. As such, he has performed in such diverse venues as churches, casinos, strip clubs and sports bars.
'Full of extravagant gestures and impassioned speeches. He inspires whoops and cheers from his watchers. Highly recommended' (BBC)
'A joy to listen to. Provocative, poignant and ultimately hilarious' (The Guardian)
'I laughed so much I thought I'd pass out!' (The List)
'It takes a special kind of act to work on both sides of the Atlantic (as well as across Africa), but it seems an easy transition as he compels the crowd with his racial and socially insightful comedy' (News and Star, Carlisle)
'Absolutely [took] the roof off the place. Brilliant, brilliant act' (The Frog and Bucket).
Daliso Chaponda tour dates
Full to the brim with down to earth Northern charm, Mike takes a bemused glance at the world and then throws it a smile. The laughs come thick and fast with Wilkinson's dry humour and razor sharp wit. Mike's been a professional comic for 7 years and in that time he has supported the likes of Peter Kay, Johnny Vegas and Ross Noble, as well as headlining clubs all over the country. Mike has a laid back style onstage, but can crush a heckler in seconds. Mike is also an accomplished pianist and guitarist!
