American Comedy Duo Due in Nigeria for Glo Laffta Festor

Renowned American comedy duo, Tony Roberts and Deeray Davis of the United States, are expected to arrive in Nigeria on Thursday, for Invasion LOL, the comedy show.
The show is packaged by Globacom, as a special version of its popular Laffta Fest shows.
Invasion LOL will kick off on Saturday, October 19, at the Expo Centre of Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, and will be followed by the Abuja edition of the show scheduled for THISDAY Dome on October 25.
The very talented and award-winning Roberts first stepped onto the stage at Mark Ridley's Comedy Castle in Royal Oak, Michigan, USA.
He has appeared on HBO's Def Comedy Jam, BET's Comic View, and It's Showtime at the Apollo. He has performed his stand-up all over the world and was the recipient of the BET Robin Harris Award for Most Original Comic.
Davies won the Comedy Central Laugh Riots Competition and was the biggest hit on the Cedric the Entertainer Tour. Best known for his role as Ray-Ray the Hustle Guy in Barbershop and Barbershop 2: Back in Business, Davis has also appeared in other films, including Semi-Pro and 21 Jump Street.
Globacom said in statement that the duo would team up with Africa's hottest comedians including the continent's number one, Ndumiso Lindi of South Africa, Uganda's Salvado and Nigeria's Basketmouth, Ali Baba, Bovi, Okey Bakassi and Akparoro. Others are Klint de Drunk, Buchi, Gordons, Funny Bone, Bash, Emeka Smith, Julius Agwu and Sim Card.
In a promotional tape on the show, Tony Roberts said, "Nigeria, how now? Join me at the Eko Hotel on October 19 and Abuja on October 25 for the Glo Laftafest shows". He ended the promo skit with a comical display of his skill in kungfu.
Globacom said the comedy sessions will be spiced with the best of Nigerian music to give the audience a first-class entertainment show that will remain memorable for a long time. "Psquare, Lagbaja and Wande Coal will pep up the Lagos edition while, MI, Lagbaja, Wande Coal and Burna Boy will serenade guests at different intervals during the Abuja show," Globacom stated.
