Humor in Nollywood - PHONE SWAP BY KUNLE AFOLAYAN

Posted in: , , ,

It's either pint sized Aki and Pawpaw are spoofing as children or adults, or other comedians are speaking strangely or grabbing crotches and breasts. Osuofia (Nkem Owoh) has been lucky with some good scripts but I don't know how that is going. These days, I just opt for the dramas and stay away from the so-called comedy. Even in Hollywood movies, I don't go for movies with crude toilet humor, or unwarranted slapstick, they just come off as cheap laughs.

The following are some of the ways I have learnt to bring out my inner extrovert;
