Britain’s Got Talent fans will be amongst the first in the queue for the Boarshurst Silver Band fundraiser at Off The Rails Comedy Club on Saturday 9th September when Britain’s Got Talent Finalist Finalist Daliso Chaponda returns to Greenfield!
Malawi’s Daliso has been a regular booking at Off The Rails for well over a decade after moving to the UK and his new found fame has won him a whole new legion of fans as well as his own Radio 4 series and UK tour which starts early next year after a quick preview at, you’ve guessed it, Off The Rails!
Daliso’s comedy career had a very unusual start. He was raised in Canada after fleeing his home country as a refugee. When
complications arose over his immigration status he chose to appeal to the authorities through the medium of a of a one hour comedy show at the Montreal Festival entitled ‘Please Don’t Deport This Black Man’. Unfortunately for Daliso this was followed up the next year with the tellingly named ‘They’re Deporting Me Anyway’
Canada’s loss was Britain’s gain however and he has been resident in the UK for over ten years now but still regularly performs his ‘Laughrica’ shows in Africa. after being raised in Canada.
Daliso is joined by headliner Mick Ferry and compere Rob Riley whilst Canada’s Matt Stellingwerf adds to the international feel of the evening. Admission is £12 on the door (assuming there are tickets left) or £10 in advance and the show takes place in the upstairs function room at the Royal George, Greenfield.
