Last weekend UK bank holiday saw Funny-man, Compere, Master of Ceremony (MC) and Comedian, British Born- Nigerian stand-up comic: Mr WALE GATES, brought the house down at the historic Catford Broadway Theatre, Catford London, with his unique style of stand-up comedy. It was his maiden London Live Show Tagged: JUST JOKING With WALE GATES.
I must apologize, for my lateness, (I was an hour late for the show) this was due to circumstances beyond my control, but l did eventually make to the sell-out show. I have met Wale on countless wedding ceremonies which he compered and l must confess this gentleman can sure make you reel in laughter till your lungs sore.
Wale was ably supported on this show by some seasoned comics who flew in from Nigeria: Julius Agwu, Basorge Tariah, Jedi, Teju Babyface, and Koffi
The show also featured rising rnb star Michael Word who performed some of his songs.
A host of UK based comedians also got the audience in laughter fits – Obonjo, Akpos, Sam Wakabout, Funny Ade and Snatcher.
Saxophonist Wale Great set the mood right with his jazzy tunes and DJ’s on the night were: Bigyem, Davy Diamond, Whateva and Archyra who rocked the house during intervals.
“I was pleasantly surprised to see a packed house and I’m immensely grateful to my fans and comedian friends who came out to support me. I can’t wait for next years edition.” said an excited Wale Gates.
I’d like to say a Big Thank you to my very good friend DJ Abass of DJA Media who flew in straight from Nigeria on the night, for letting me be part of this show.
