Urban Entertainment from a British perspective

Lol: Kojo’s Live N Kicking DVD on the way

One of the UK’s finest comedians Kojo, will be ringing in the New Year with laughter.  This follows his The Fresh Prince Of Hackney performance which was broadcast on MTV Base.   After five years conquering America, including appearing on the NBC show Last Comic Standing In America, the witty Kojo returns to the Hackney Empire (a venue he sold out in 2006 and 2007),  on January 21 and 22 to tape his premiere DVD Live N Kicking, which will be released by Revolver Entertainment at the end of 2012.

Best known for Kojo’s Comedy Fun House, his weekly comedy club, Kojo 31, branched out into other aspects of entertainment including presenting on the Choice FM Breakfast show and screenwriting. His latest venture is film with a debut role in Noel Clarke’s The Knot.

Kojo has written a show which will focus on a range of topics including the capital’s dating scene, being raised in foster care, the likelihood of a black prime minister and the London riots.

Kojo says:  “I’m one of many urban voices that need to be heard as the things politicians ignore are the things we’ve had to make jokes out of to stop us going crazy!” You’d be mad to miss the show.
