Salman Malik:

As a TV presenter Salman has worked for some of the more prominent names in the Asian media industry such as Sahara one, Brit Asia TV, Venus TV, and Apex TV.

His experiences as a stand-up Comedian adds a touch of humour to his presenting style. Indeed, it is his quick whit and stage presence that keeps the crowd buzzing and hungry for more. Salman has a completely different approach to comedy, mixing culture with humor to create something really special.

Nicole Harris:

Comedian Nicole Harris has not only won the 2016 New Jewis Comedian of the Year Award but she’s the first woman to win it!

Nicole, who has been gigging for just over a year told us: “I’m delighted to have won the New Jewish Comedian of the Year Award, especially as the other finalists were all so good. It was also judged by industry experts, which makes me think i might have something to offer the industry and has given me the boost I needed to go forward in my comedy career.

“I think humour and laughter are a big part of the Jewish culture, whether you’re religious or not. I grew up with a lot of joking around in our house and I remember my grandad trying out his jokes on me every time he came round! He used to enjoy so much telling me jokes and seeing my reaction and I think he’d be happy watching me do stand up if he were alive today. Jackie Mason was the first Jewish stand up comedian I saw and he was great at what he did. Even though my style and jokes are very different from his, I’m sure it inspired me from a very young age, along with other great Jewish and non Jewish comedians alike!”


 

President Obonjo:

President Obonjo of Lafta Republic has been performing stand-up comedy since 2010. The President is a comedy character, whose set combines political and personal story lines (drawing on his alter ego’s experiences and influences as a British Nigerian), the impact of Social media on his life, and the nonsense of modern life. He is a bit of a charmer in his Field Marshal’s uniform.

President Obonjo is a hard-working, reliable, creative comedian - in demand as a high-energy, extrovert, warm and natural act and compere, the perfect act or host for all occasions, from weddings to corporate gigs.
