September 30, 2016 – Nollywood Actor Basorge Tariah Blasts Nigerian Comedians, Says They All Crack The Same Boring Jokes

Veteran actor, comedian, producer and director, Basorge Tariah Jnr., has been away from the movie scene as well as the comic industry for a while now. The entertainer slammed comedians in a recent interview with Hip TV where he disclosed that a lot of Nigerian comedians recycle jokes.

There’s no gainsaying that, many still think there are comedians whose originality still stands rock-solid till date. He further stressed that the jokes are not intelligent and he is yet to see any comedian in the industry who sounds like Trevor Noah.

“I can’t specify who got what it takes and who doesn’t. My problem with the industry is that a lot of people are telling the same jokes, and a lot of them are not intelligent or original. I will say it’s time for us to have intelligent writers that would have punch-lines that would begin to sound like Trevor Noah, because I haven’t seen any- o n e yet.”

    IT IS true that many comedians recycle their jokes, but if they are asked to assess you as you have just done to them, they may equally flay you. Do you think your own acts are original? Stand-up comedy is more taskng than mere acting, and you should respect that.
