Britain’s Got Talent ’s stand out stand-up comedy star Kojo Anim is heading out on the road with his debut UK tour – and will be visiting The Orchard Theatre!
Kojo is here to make the world laugh, sharing his funny observations and stories about life, parenthood and family. With his infectious smile, and winning routines, Kojo Anim wowed the judges and audiences on Britain’s Got Talent. Simon Cowell was so blown away by Kojo’s first audition routine he hit his golden buzzer to send him straight into the live semi-finals, saying: “I don’t really like comedians on this show… But I love you!” That first BGT performance alone has had more than 23 million views on YouTube.
Speaking about his BGT experience, and now announcing his debut UK tour, Kojo said: “For me, Britain’s Got Talent wasn’t about winning £250,000, it was a chance to get in front of the judges, and to prove to myself that I can perform in front of anybody.
“My goal was to make it to the final, and now here I am – announcing my first solo tour, something I’ve been working towards for 20 years.
“Since my first audition when Simon pressed the golden buzzer, my whole life has changed and now I can’t wait to jump in a taxi to travel the country making people laugh.”
The former BT customer service employee from Hackney, in East London, has previously worked with American stand-up stars Kevin Hart (Wembley Arena, 2014), Dave Chappelle (UK tour, 2015) and Chris Rock and was a hit on NBC series Last Comic Standing in America in 2008.
Previous TV work includes CBBC show The Mighty Truck Of Stuff with Reggie Yates and MTV Base show The Fresh Prince Of Hackney. He has also hosted the breakfast show on radio station Capital XTRA.
