Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
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 and was a finalist on Britain's Got Talent 2017. He has lived in countries where the press is not allowed to criticize the government, and in others with no libel laws where they can say anything. He has been both a journalist and a jaded newsreader.
Daliso has appeared at many festivals that have included Melbourne, Edinburgh, Singapore and Cape Town Festivals. He is also a prolific fiction writer and has had his science fiction, murder mysteries and fantasy fiction published in numerous magazines and anthologies. He also co-wrote a play that aired on BBC Radio 4.
'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
'Wayne The Weird is an outrageous comedian and magician' (The Southern Daily Echo).
'No-one in the audience will be able to ever look at rubber gloves and white rabbits in the same way again' (Creative Cows Comedy).
'... the outrageous comedian and magician... Bamboozling and fascinating the audience with trickery, his balance of comedy, magic and banter is the recipe for his success' (Funhouse Comedy).
Wayne The Weird tour dates
Kevin knew he was destined to be a stand up comedian when at the age of just 8 months he fell ten feet down a stairwell and banged his head on a newspaper rack; because of this people have been laughing at him ever since. As soon as he steps on a stage the audience quickly realise they are in the company of a natural born performer!
'Very funny indeed. A poignant tale with lots of really good deadpan humour. He is a little like Eddie Izzard – but he made me laugh much more than Eddie Izzard ever could. Engaging, very slick and professional. Wonderful songs that had me and the audience in stitches. A very likeable comedian' (The Edinburgh Enlightenment).
