Kojo is undoubtedly one of the most famously ‘un- famous’ comedians in the UK. He currently wakes up the UK with his radio breakfast show on Capital Xtra and in just 15 years, Kojo has had a national TV show on CBBC with Reggie Yates, 3 comedy shows on MTV Base including his comedy special ‘The Fresh Prince Of Hackney’ in 2007.
Having sold out his local theatre ‘Hackney Empire’ on 7 occasions, appeared in movies ‘The Knot’ with Noel Clarke and ‘It’s A Lot’, Kojo’s talents have taken him on international soil performing on US TV in NBC’s ‘Last Comic Standing’.
More recently Kojo has become the first international comedian on Nick Cannon’s MTV show ‘Wild N Out’. He is also responsible for the resurgence of urban comedy after the ‘Real McCoy’ era, showcasing comedians at his ‘Comedy Fun House’ club for 10 years seeing comedians such as Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle and Kevin Hart grace the stage.
Kojo has written his very first short film ‘Wasteman Diaries’ and theatre production ‘Above Romance‘. Having achieved all of the above, he still can’t get guest list at night clubs because he’s considered ‘Almost Famous’. Well that is all about to change…
