Well, I guess that’s what everyone was supposed to think- but somehow this gentleman’s performance didn’t quite cut it.

Apparently, somewhere in between the bawdy jokes and street urchin dressing he lost the judges. And while he may have earnestly tried to make a fair imitation of the popular Nigerian comic, the joke eventually was on him.
Quick note to thyself, if you’re not a first rate comedian, never set a comic sketch around a tragedy… you’ll leave the judges… crying! Loll.
Watch out for the next set of auditions in Calabar on 12th of October, 2013!
