About this Event

GINA YASHERE

Gina was born & raised in London UK, of Nigerian parents, and previously worked as an elevator engineer for Otis.

Gina has been a stand up and TV star in the UK for several years now, with appearances on iconic TV shows such as Live At The Apollo & Mock The Week, as well as creating & performing popular comedic characters on The Lenny Henry Show.

She broke onto the American comedy scene with her appearances on Last Comic Standing (NBC), where she made it to the final 10, and then never went home!

Gina went on to be named one of the top 10 rising talents in the Hollywood Reporter.

She is also known in the US for being the only British comedian to ever appear on the iconic Def Comedy Jam, as well as for her hilarious appearances on The Tonight Show (NBC) & Crashing on HBO.

Gina self produced 3 separate 1 hour Stand Up Specials, Skinny B*tch, Laughing To America, & Ticking Boxes which were showcased on Showtime, Starz and Sirius XM.

Gina's 4th stand up special is currently streaming on Netflix, as part of The Standups, season 2, & is garnering rave reviews on the network.

She is also regularly featured on Comedy Central as the British Correspondent on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

Gina is also an in demand voice artist.

It’s a wonder she found the time to pick up her 4th award in a row for “Best Comedian” at the recent Black Entertainment & Comedy Awards (UK).

Gina has performed numerous times at the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal and Toronto.

Feature films appearances have included Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Mr. in Between, and she has also appeared on the West-End stage in The Vagina Monologues.

Gina currently resides in New York and tours non-stop around the world.

JOJO SMITH

In the last two decades JoJo has gone from open spot to late night TV personality, from global fame on the Internet to international comedy performer, not bad going for someone who until then had never stood on a stage in her life. International performances include sold out tours of Europe, South Africa, Australia, China, Bahrain, Dubai, Abu Dhabi. Her strong views had her proclaimed a feminist icon in Cape Town, and quite frankly the laid back Aussies wondered what had hit them. Safe to say she made quite an impact!

During the 40-odd episodes of Funny Business that JoJo wrote and presented she made a name for herself as a chat show host of the old school, that is she let the guests do the talking. Fifteen years as a newspaper journalist taught her you get more out of someone if you shut up. Her guests included Jimmy Cricket, Lee Evans, Jo Brand and Rich Hall.

A sold-out 20 date tour as support to Craig Charles quickly got her used to playing 1000+ seater venues, and she has consolidated her success as a stand-up by regularly topping the bills at venues all over the UK.
