United Kingdom-based stand-up comedian and writer Daliso Chaponda says he is developing a radio show to maximise his product’s reach.
Chaponda also revealed that he is targeting the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).
“I am developing a show for BBC radio because it has a huge reach. I have worked with them before, so now I am trying a bigger project with them,” he said in an interview.
Chaponda said the show focuses on a wide range of issues affecting the world.
The comedian recently lost out in a $100 000 (about K73 million) competition for the world’s funniest person organised by Laughter Factory in the United States.
“I was approached by the organisers to register for the competition. The more people who clicked ‘like’ on my video and share it on Facebook, the more chances I would have been in the finals. But I got less votes,” said Chaponda.
The 37-year-old started his trade in Canada and first performed in Malawi in 2009.
He has appeared on the Trans Canada Comedy Trail TV show, Just for Laughs and the Melbourne, Adelaide, Cape Town and Johannesburg Comedy festivals.
Recently, Chaponda opened the Sugar Sammy’s World Tour in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, Jordan and eight cities in Canada. n
