MICRO PUG COMEDY CLUB DEBUTS AT SILVER FOX MICRO PUB!!!

A FULL NIGHT OF LIVE COMEDY!!
HEADLINE ACT – PRESIDENT OBONJO

‘In the age of Trump, populism and Brexit, the world probably doesn’t need another bloated ego pretending to give easy solutions. Thankfully what we need is a comedy character who skewers them with precision, hilarity and who isn't afraid at showing vulnerability’.

Larger-than-life, uber-confident, self-appointed, side-splitting dictator of 'Lafta Republic', President Obonjo has quietly been leading a comedy revolution to become the first President to take over the comedy industry by storm. He has been creating rumblings by storming New Act competitions including winning Luton Comedian of the Year, Runner-Up at Great Yorkshire Fringe and was a finalist in the Naty New Act of the Year competition 2016. His previous solo show President Obonjo Stole My Identity was performed in 2015 at Bath Comedy Festival, Brighton Fringe and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals in 2015 and 2017  to packed crowds and critical acclaim. His latest show the Rise of the Comedy Dictator was performed at Edinburgh Fringe Comedy Festival in 2017 and at Leicester Comedy Festival in 2018.
It’s a great comic construct, with lots of seized opportunities for playing with the clichés” – Steve Bennett, Chortle

 “There was the potential of that high-status, comedy bomb-proof kind of character that Alexis Dubus has created so successfully with Marcel Lucont.”
 - Ben Venables, Londonist  
“This hour-long show was a revelation... Not at all what I was expecting.”  - John Fleming
“On the face of it, it works as a well-crafted political comedy, exposing how the world has treated Africa and left much of it to suffer corrupt governments led by the likes of Obonjo. But it's the layers of context that really make this a fascinating, bewildering and painfully funny experience.” - ☆☆☆☆☆ Fringe Guru
 
Opening Act - Eleanor Conway

Eleanor is a multi-award winning comedian. She’s sold out 3 tours worldwide with her shows ‘Walk of Shame 1 & 2’ and ‘You May Recognise Me From Tinder’, her self-produced debut tour selling out a 100 date, 10 country tour. During lockdown she garnered millions of views on Tik Tok for her fresh takes on dating, hook-up culture and being childfree and has just returned from a sell-out smash run at the Edinburgh Festival 2021 with her 2021 show ‘Vaxxed & Waxxed’ after 20 extra dates were added due to phenomenal demand. 

You may also recognise her from The Guardian, Woman’s Hour, Stylist, Grazia, Channel 4 & BBC 4 Extra.

★★★★ ‘Chaotic and electric’ - The Skinny

★★★★ ‘It would make a sensational movie’ - Female First ,

Myself and friends absolutely loved the show from start to finish. Great venue set in our favourite micropub, staff are always so attentive and can never do enough for you. The comedians were fantastic, had us in tears of laughter and they interacted really well with the audience. Really hope another event is arranged in future!
