Memories from the Surulere edition of Glo Laffta Fest will forever remain indelible in the minds of over 10,000 Glo subscribers who thronged the Eagle Club, Surulere, venue of the Glo-sponsored Laffta Fest comedy show last Sunday.
The show which began as early as 4pm pulled a mammoth crowd, filling the auditorium to maximum capacity with an overflow of guests numbering more than the guests inside the auditorium.
As at 2pm on Sunday, guests had filled the auditorium anticipating an evening of unrestricted entertainment from the comedians billed to perform. A warm blend of green lighting effects which incidentally represented the colors of Globacom, set the mood for the evening.
The comedians lived up to expectation as the audience roared in laughter from the beginning of the show to the end. It was not surprising when the guests refused to leave the venue at the end of the show clamoring for more jokes.
Basket mouth who anchored the show was in his usual hilarious element. He announced the comedians and performers one after the other in a manner that left the audience wondering who would be next on stage.
Osama, D Don, Julius Agwu, I go Dye, Gordons, and Odogwu, were the comedians who held the audience spell bound jolting them from their seats with hilarious jokes.
Julius Agwu, just recuperating from a brain surgery gave an account of his medical ordeal while cracking up jokes.
Activities which included a dancing competition added spice to the show. Male and female guests were called up on stage in a dance competition by Rekaardo Banks when he performed his hit track ‘Catapult’, ‘Corner’, ‘Sugar Baby’ and ‘Tomorrow’.
A loud shrill came from a group of guests when Leke Adisa, a ten year old pupil of Olayomi Private school Surulere won the competition.
One of the guests at the show, Nkechi Maduka, said she was thrilled by the comedians. “The jokes by Gordons and I go Dye were rib cracking. I’m really glad I came for the show. I can’t wait for the Ikeja edition” she enthused.
A statement from Globacom’s headquarters said that Laffta Fest was developed to give back to teeming Glo subscribers.
“ Subscribers who wish to attend the on-going Laffta Fest comedy show can still do so by using up to 3,000 before the next show and sending LOL Location’ to 33001. For example ‘LOL Port Harcourt’ to 33001. The next show will hold in Port Harcourt on September 27, 2015”, the statement added.
