Nabil Alhassan: Women are funnier comedians

Event organiser Nabil Alhassan has noted that women are funnier comedians so they should not shy away from taking up comedy. 

“Females are funnier, they have more stuff to share and I will entreat them to do comedy if they have what it takes and also have the passion for it. There is money in comedy if you position yourself well,” he said.

For many years, Nabil’s Easter Comedy show was a good platform for comedy enthusiasts not only to watch their favourite comedians but also a means to enjoy homour stories.

However, the Easter Comedy Show has been off the radar for the past two years and Nabil revealed to Graphic Showbiz that he had plans to bring it back next year.

“The event was off due to lack of funding but hopefully, we are coming back next year. The comedians will agree with me after hosting their own shows that it is not easy to do so without sponsors. I am, therefore, appealing to sponsors to come on board,” he added.

Ghanaian comedians have stepped up their craft splitting the sides of their audience in recent times, headlining their own shows and even filling venues to capacity; yet, the event organiser said that he is not ready to host an all-Ghanaian-comedian show.

He mentioned to Graphic Showbiz that even though Ghanaian comedians have chalked up some success lately, there is still room for improvement and he will continue to stick to a blend of Ghanaian comedians and those from other African countries for now.

 “I don’t think I will feature only Ghanaian comedians on my show yet. Maybe, I will do so in the future but not now. As an event organiser, you need to weigh your options when putting together such events. I have hosted Easter Comedy Show for eight years without sponsorship but I do it because of the passion I have for comedy, he told Graphic Showbiz.
