I am a Nigerian-American comedian, producer, and writer working theaters, clubs and colleges on the East Coast. I have opened for Gina Yashere, Michael Ian Black, Ms. Pat, 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 live at Caroline's on Broadway as a part of the New York Comedy Festival. I  have produced shows for 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 in 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 recently 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.
