Thur 26 May - Boe the Comedian


Our Sofa Surfer Boe has them regularly rolling in the aisles!

He's a Stand-up Comedian, a Sketch Writer, an Actor and Presenter.

Boe was born the last of four children to Nigerian parents and grew up in Islington, North London. It was while studying for a BSc (Hons) in Microbiology at university that Boe would make his first foray into the world of stand-up comedy.

It was Boe’s mother’s terminal struggle with breast cancer which encouraged him to let go of his fears in life; inspiring him to take to the stage, this would later become the impetus for his first One-Man show, which was held in support of Breast Cancer Care.

Boe’s talent has seen him featured in Timeout, Evening Standard, The Voice, The Stage, London Lite, The London Paper, London Town and All in London (amongst others). Boe has quickly distinguished himself over the past few years as a comedian, with his intelligent twisted take on the world, creative delivery and fiery taste for hecklers.

Following two hugely successful One-Man comedy shows in 2009 at the Shaw Theatre and The Bloomsbury Theatre, as well as performing at most of London’s top comedy venues including Comedy Store, Jongleurs, Hackney Empire, Comedy Cafe and Choice FM (amongst many others), Boe The Comedian now looks set to become one of the brightest stars of comedy.

The Finalist of Holsten Pils Comedy Tour can often be found hosting a variety of showcases around London and beyond as his ad-lib skills have made him a much sort after presenter and host.

Boe The Comedian has now taken over the airwaves with his very own comedy show on Voice of Africa Radio.
