Daliso Chaponda, Britain’s Got Talent and Amanda Holden’s 'golden buzzer' act, embarks on his debut stand up tour WHAT THE AFRICAN SAID.
The Malawian born stand up was a stand out star from this year’s show, capturing the nation's hearts and garnering over eight million Facebook views, nine million on Youtube and his own BBC Radio 4 series Daliso Caponda: Citizen of Nowhere.
Daliso Chaponda has lived in countries where the press is not allowed to criticise the government, and in others with no libel laws where they can say anything. He has been both a journalist and a jaded newsreader. He is the perfect comedian to discuss what the media has become, which he does in his hilarious new show about recent news, old news, fake news, and stories that were almost news.
