MalawiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s funny man and only standup comedian, Daliso Chaponda, will perform in Zimbabwe and Canada after the shows in Lilongwe and Blantyre.
Following a series of shows under his 2011 Laughrica tour in the UK, Malawi, Zimbabwe and South Africa, Daliso will stage his new show The Antisocial Commentator at Crossroads Hotel in the capital on Friday next week before making a debut appearance at Robins Park Hall in Blantyre the following day.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“My old show Ã¢â‚¬ËœLaughricaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ is still touring and the week after I perform in Malawi, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be doing shows in Zimbabwe and then Canada, but I wanted to pass through home first to launch my new show before I head out to do both the Ã¢â‚¬ËœLaughricaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and Ã¢â‚¬ËœAntisocial CommentatorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ tours,Ã¢â‚¬Â he explains.
Famed for his comic versatility, Daliso, also an established writer, has performed for diverse audiences across the world ranging from youth, religious communities, corporate entities and the general public.
The Antisocial Commentator will be his third show in the country following previous performances at the now closed Umunthu Theatre in 2009 and Crossroads Hotel in 2011.
According to the youthful comedian, it is from the overwhelming response he received from the 2011 LaughricaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ show at Crossroads Hotel that has motivated him to return with the Antisocial Commentator.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“It will be a bigger show. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll cross more boundaries and ask more questions and in the midst of all that, have you laughing so hard,Ã¢â‚¬ÂDali further adds.
Both shows will start at 7.30 with musical comic Scott Gray as supporting act.
