I love comedy shows. Because I love to laugh. I attend Naija comedy events not just for the jokes (80% of which I’ve heard before) but for the thrill of dressing up nicely and meeting other nicely dressed people and of course, “showing face” in one or two industry event.
Lately, even the thrill of dressing up is beginning to wan, with the increasingly distasteful, insensitive and sometimes downright offensive jokes the audience is being served.
Some of these shows are branded “family” shows and are sponsored by “family” brands. What this means is that minors can attend and certain values are expected to be promoted.
