COBO : United Nations Of Laughter brings a international comedy show with an almighty bang!
Doors: 18:00 – Last Entry: 18:45
Kane Brown (Jamaica), Babatundae (Nigeria), Sol Bernstein (Jerusalem), Quincy (Barbados) & Will E (USA) for an evening of laughter.
** Kane Brown – Team Jamaica **
Kane Brown is THE name which has become associated with fearless and bold comedy who leaves crowds wanting more with his outlandish, direct & honest style of comedy.
** Babatundae – Team Africa **
Babatunde started comedy at the age of 17 and has won awards in 2005 for best
newcomer at the Black Entertainment comedy awards & Best Newcomer at
Da Comedy Fun House in 2004.
Babatunde is best known for his funny impressions of being a young Nigerian growing up in North London
& performs regularly around the UK.
** Sol Bernstein – Team Jerusalem **
Whena legend reaches a certain point in their career, it’s time to ease up on doing legendary things and reflect on an exemplary life. Sol Bernstein has reached that point, and he invites us to listen to his
tales of the high life with the biggest names in showbiz, musings on how the world has changed, and being just an ordinary Jew with world-beating wit, unbounded talent and death-defying chutzpah.
But despite such a life, Sol has suffered an unforgivable injustice. Heard of Elvis Presley? No? How about The Beatles? Really? Ok then, surely Marcel Marceau? Good. Well Sol Bernstein launched the careers of these
greats and many more, and what did he get for it? Nada. Nothing, not even a ‘thank you’. But having escaped the Pogroms in Russia and the Nazis in Germany as a child, Bernstein is no stranger to pain, and
hardships – in all their forms – have made the man what he is. Such struggles – be they life-threatening or merely female nagging – give Sol Bernstein not only the inspiration to face each new day but the
material for his limitless supply of comedy shtick. The resulting performances – not to mention charisma alone – have given the man good reason to enjoy fame and build friendships with, among so many, the
likes of Burt Bacharach, James Brown and Harry Hill.
He’s got so much to say and – being now in his 80s – so little time to say it. Catch this legend and genius while you still have the chance.
** Quincey – Team Barbados **
Award-winning Comedian, Quincy, is a far cry from the well-known Medical Examiner from the popular 70’s TV Show.
Quincy has a stage presence second to none, putting him amongst the most well respected comics on the scene. Winner of Black Entertainment Comedy Award 2005, Star of Kojo’s MTV Base Comedy Fun House, with appearances on BBC and Comedy Central, Quincy brings audiences comedy with a difference, touching on culture, daily observations and life as a Single Father.
A successful run with a one-man-show at the infamous Edinburgh Festival and Founder of Quincy’s Comedy Lounge – which enjoyed a sold out 5th year anniversary show at West End’s Bloomsbury Theatre
in September 2012 – Quincy, also known as the Cockney Prince, is a certified versatile Entertainer who delivers to audiences both on and off stage.
Often billed as a Compere as well as Radio Host and Presenter, with his weekly radio talk show, Quincy is a regular on the international comedy circuit, performing on numerous occasions in New York, Singapore, Dubai, India and across Europe.
** Will E – Team USA **
Energetic, charismatic, versatile and animated are just a few words that describe Will-E Robo’s stand-up routines. He is a universal comedian, with an overflow of energy, combining his storytelling abilities with vividly humorous gestures and amazing sound effects that can paint a clear picture in our heads. He is also notoriously known for his impressions of animals, entertainers, and other characters.
