Ilorin-born and raised comedian, Tosin Opaleke popularly known as Young MC makes a jump from his annual solo comedy specials to the first ever group comedy special in Kwara State.
The special titled Young MC’s Parliament of Jokes with Members of the House of Misrepresentatives was recorded in front of a sold-out limited audience at Noktel Resort and Hotel in Ilorin, Kwara State on boxing day, 2020. The event was restricted to 100 guests only due to COVID-19 protocols.
The concept of the event that makes it generally unique and different from ‘other regular shows’ is the presentation of a never-before-seen linkage of performances using semi-structured scripts, the parliamentarians included Young MC as Speaker and Dr Whiteberry (Baba Kamo), TY Jokez, Kayflames and MC Desktop as Honourable Members of the House of Misrepresentatives.
The show was opened by young and upcoming comedians in the state such as AY Toms, Xammyblaq, Chairman D Comedian, Dimimu DC and other comedians such as Oyas Baba, MC Bukkon, Crown West and Cay Swaggs. Ben Da Poet played the role of Chief Whip of the House of Misrepresentatives.
The show was packaged and produced by Tosin Opaleke Company and the comedy special by Flex Studios.
