Nigerian skit maker and comedian, Nosa Afolabi, popularly known as Lasisi Elenu, has stated that stand-up comedy is more tasking than skit-making.
He admitted this during a recent interview with Hip TV, adding that there is a lot of pressure in doing stand-up comedy.
Lasisi shared his thoughts on the financial differences and level of work which he noted is not comparable even though they are both lucrative.
He said; “Both [stand-up comedy and skit-making] have a different feel. There is a lot of pressure in stand-up comedy. You’ve to be on your A-game, and you have to make several materials ready in case you use one and it’s not that good, you can always improvise. It’s very important to do that.
“However, skit-making has become a part of me; one which I can do at anytime, any moment, from sleep, it’s a go for me. I know how to put myself in tune. Yeah, both [stand-up comedy and skit-making] are lucrative. It just depends on how you channel… As a matter of fact, it’s not how hard you work but how smart you work.
“So, it’s not about making the most skit videos, it’s how well you channel the videos to the right plugs go brand them in such a way that in turn you get financial reward for them. I believe either skit-making or stand-up comedy can give you the financial gains you’re looking for.”
