President Obonjo returns to the Leicester Comedy Festival after performing hugely successful shows last year. The self-proclaimed dictator of the Lafta Republic is an intelligent and satirical look at Trump, Brexit and the rise of populism through the lens of an egotistical, world-promising leader, based on the experiences of his creator’s life as a British Nigerian. You shouldn’t be surprised if the President invites you to join his country by the end of the show – after all, he’s staging a comedy revolution, and we’re all comedy refugees.
