GRAB THE MIC NIGERIA – WILDCARDS
The journey to find Nigeria’s next comic superstar has been epic. We held auditions in Lagos, Port Harcourt and Jos with hundreds arriving hopeful of being crowned the next big star in Nigerian comedy. While impressive talent was found in all these cities, only two finalists from each city made the cut and secured their spots in the grand finale.
We have six finalists, but now it’s time for you to have a say. There was so much talent in each of the respective cities, we picked two WILD CARDS from each city. You can check out their work and then VOTE for the one you would like to see join the finalists in the grand finale. Who knows, you could have a hand in selecting the next big thing in Nigerian comedy.
