I am a New York based Nigerian-American comedian, producer, and writer working theaters, clubs and colleges. I have featured for Zainab Johnson, Gina Yashere, Michael Ian Black, Ms. Pat, Kurt Braunohler on the road, and Marina Franklin at the Comedy Cellar. I have been featured in the Boston Globe's Rise column as a Comic to Watch and on Sway In The Morning as a part of the New York Comedy Festival. I  have written produced shows for The Stonewall Inn, The Women in Comedy sponsored by HBO and I was co-producer of the Best of Boston Award winning show, The Boston Comedy Chicks. In 2019, I made my acting debut last year in LGBTQ romcom The Sympathy Card.


You may have heard me on NPR, Marina Franklin's Friends Like Us Podcast, Food Republic Today, Dark Tank or you may have seen me on Cityline on ABC Boston. You also may have caught me on PBS in Boston or starring in and producing Will Smith: The Comedy Variety Show at the American Repertory Theater's Club Oberon. I was a guest speaker at Emerson College Center for Comedic Arts during a discussion panel titled "Killing It With Comedy – Can Humor Combat Social Injustice?” I was named Patron Saint of Perpetual Laughter by The Boston Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence for my charitable contributions in the Greater-Boston area.
