Following the success of the just concluded third installment of his comedy show series ‘Forever Funny With Forever’, comedian Akuidolo Orevaoghene known by his stage name Forever, has called out Nigerian comedians to understand the difference between Comedy concerts which is what most of them do and Comedy Shows which is what he wants to be identified with.
Forever made this known in an interview where he stated; “We really hope that Nigerians understand and appreciate comedy for what it is to now. Most people think that a comedy show without musical interludes cannot work. When they appreciate the fact that comedy is comedy and what it does is to make you laugh, then they’ll know it can stand on its own without any form of support.”
The comedian continued; “It borders on other comedians to virtually do the same and believe their brand is strong enough to make it work, if you want to do a comedy show I think you should focus more on comedy contents and make it more. At least we can start with not letting the musicians be more than the comedians in the comedy show and that way people are going to understand that comedy well stands by itself.”
His just concluded Comedy Show held at the Muson Centre Onikan featured comic acts like Bovi, Mc Abbey, Funny Bone, Lafup, Mc lively among others, with no musical performances at all.
