Award-winning very charming
Daliso began his comedy career in Canada with the acclaimed one man show ‘Feed This Black Man’. Following this, he began honing his craft in comedy clubs across Canada. Highlights included appearing on the Trans Canada Comedy Trail TV show and perfoming a One-Man character comedy about a torturer titled 'Incisions'.
Before leaving Canada Daliso appeared in the 2005 Just For Laughs Comedy Festival and he used this exposure to secure an agent in South Africa. After 6 months touring the South African comedy scene he moved to England. He regularly appears in comedy clubs and theatres across the UK. He is a versatile comedian and in one week performed a filthy set in Silhouettes Strip Club in Birmingham and then, two days later, did an all-ages one hour show about faith and family in the 2007 Greenbelt Christian Fetsival. 'Everything is funny,' he told a reporter from iafrica.com. 'Why restrict yourself?'
Daliso has also been known to jump on planes and tell jokes anywhere on the globe (even on the planes - whether the passenger next to him wants to listen or not). He has been part of the Melbourne,Edinburgh and Cape Town Festivals.
In 2011 Daliso Chaponda grew frustrated with the fact that he was better known outside Africa than so he began a project called 'Laughrica'. He launched a one man show in Malawi and followed it up with appearances in Zimbabwe, South Africa and Nigeria.
In addition to Stand up Comedy, Daliso is also a prolific fiction writer. He has also published science fiction, murder mysteries, erotica, literary fiction, religious fiction and fantasy fiction in numerous magazines and anthologies. In 2002 he was a finalist in the L. Ron Hubbard Writer’s of the Future Contest and in 2006 he was short listed for the Carl Brandon Society Award.
It takes a special kind of act to work on both sides of the Atlantic (as well as across Africa), but it seems an easy transition as he compels the crowd with his socially insightful comedy.-News and Star,
One of the finest, funniest and most fair-minded comic commentators on race and post-colonial integration that I have seen- Three Weeks, SCOTLAND
Full of extravagant gestures and impassioned speeches. He inspires whoops and cheers from his watchers. Highly recommended- BBC Tees, ENGLAND
A stand up comedian with raw Eddie Murphy confidence, cheek and super-polished style-Nerve, ENGLAND
‘His act is an exhilerating tour de farce’- Adelaide Now, AUSTRALIA
This Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award 2011 & 2014 nominee
Multi award winning showman
crazy personality /exciting /unpredictable
This Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award 2011 & 2014 nominee is one of the most daring and unconventional comics out there. Completely original and vastly absurd, he has one foot firmly planted into the soils of reality, and the other rooted deep into the psyche of being silly.
“A fantastically funny hour of lunacy… little short of perfect.” ★★★★ Telegraph“A masterpiece of surreality, silliness and sadness wrapped up in a comedy performance of such passion and complexity that it approaches genius.” ★★★★★ Scotsman (on Sam Simmons Fail)“When held against the rules of comedy super stardom, Simmons is a lawless gent indeed. Through laughter he will seduce you into his dinky, intimate underside.” ★★★★★ The Age, Melbourne See Sam at the Melbourne Comedy Festival here
