Comedian Chaponda returns with `Laughgate`

Written by  Sam Phiri

The expectation of comedy lovers are pregnant following revelations that UK based Malawian standup comedian Dalitso Chaponda is coming to Malawi again with a `Laughgate`.


“Laughgate” is the follow-up to his 2013-2014 tour “Presidents of Laughrica”, which he performed alongside comedians Carl Joshua from Zimbabwe and Patrick Salvador from Uganda.

Chaponda, son to Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Minster George Chaponda, is well known for taking on African politicians including his father in his comedies.

The Stand-up comedian is set for Malawi’s Bingu International Conference Centre (BICC) on Saturday, April 25.
According to a statement posted on his wall about the tour, the artist is set to bring back home the best of humour.
“The UK-based Malawian comic legend this year brings his unique style and humor to his motherland, and he will make you break down laughing as he’ll do it without cracking a smile,” reads the statement.
The show will see supporting acts from Dee Satha and Neil Nayer.
“There will also be musical performances from Blantyre-based artist Classic of the Home Grown Africa Hip Hop outfit whose songs are topping many music charts locally and rapper Viceroy of Classmates, a new music clique in town,” added the statement.
Chaponda developed his sensibilities as a comedian in Canada with the acclaimed one man show ‘Feed This Black Man’.
Following this, he began honing his craft in comedy clubs across Canada.
