For the last four years, Nabil Alhassan’s Event Factory has hosted the Easter Comedy Show and after featuring a number of Ghanaain comedians, he believes they are not doing well enough to boost their craft.
According to Nabil, who has had comedians like DKB, Khemical, Jacinta,Lekzy and Two Idiots on his show, most Ghanaian comedians don’t do research or work on new jokes making them boring.
“Research is the key and that is why the Nigerians are always ahead of Ghanaian comedians. They do a lot of research into current situatons and make nice jokes about them,” he told Showbiz.
Nabil is of the view that Ghanaian comedians are no match for Nigerian comedians as the latter are far ahead of us.
“I know the Ghanaian comedians will be angry with me but that is the honest truth. There are more than 15 good comedians in Nigeria who will rock their audience any day but that cannot be said of the Ghanaians.
The likes of Bovi, Basketmouth, Gordons, Acapella, Buchi, Akporono among others who have also been on my comedy shows will always get their act right because they take their craft serioiusly,” he said.
Another thing Nabil also complaine about is incosnsitency which is ending the caeer of most of the Ghanaiain comedians. He explained that they flopped just as many time as they killed it.
“An event organiser like me will not continuously book a comedian who is not consistent. You can never tell when that comedian will fail and I don’t want to put my work on the line,”he said.
