BIG TOP COMEDY PRESENTS
Daliso Chaponda the Britain’s Got Talent finalist has landed his own stand-up comedy show on BBC Radio 4.
Known recently also from his appearance on BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, and the Edinburgh Fringe, #Daliso started in comedy in 2001 in Canada with the acclaimed one man show ‘Feed This Black Man’. Subsequent appearances across Canada followed (highlights include The Just For Laughs Festival 2005 & CBC Television’s ‘Crossing The Main’).
In 2004 Daliso Chaponda headlined the ‘Don’t Let Them Deport Me’ Comedy Show as a plea to officials to have his Canadian visa extended. The show was sold out, well reviewed, and frenzied letters were written to bureaucrats. He was forced to leave anyway after one final show, 2005’s “They’re Deporting Him Anyway.” Next, he worked as a comedy writer and performer in #SouthAfrica before moving to the #UK.
