Emmanuel Sonubi

A new talent at the door of Stand-Up, his name's down and he's definitely coming in.

One of my favourite discoveries of the year is Emmanuel Sonubi. Hilarious, warm and unique.

The bloke has got funny bones. He's incredibly likable despite looking like he could snap you in two.

London based Emmanuel Sonubi has only been on the comedy circuit for a short time and he’s already garnering himself a reputation as one to watch out for by already being asked to support Jason Manford on several of his UK tour dates.

Ex-bouncer Emmanuel was born and bred in North London where he extracts most of his hilarious interactions with the vibrant cockneys and reprobates he has encountered. Now, as a father of two, the soon to be headliner has a wealth of material of playing pranks with his kids as well as his questionable parenting skills.

Since 2015 he has performed at numerous high profile clubs including a showcase set in The best in Stand up at The Comedy Store in London, The International Comedy Festival Rotterdam, Altitude Comedy Festival at The Ski Show, plus regular shows in Ibiza, Cyprus, Turkey and Holland. He has even headlined the Bestival comedy tent (by accident).
