Tayo Cousins

"A bright, new stand-up talent." The Skinny

Though he was raised in Manchester, it was in the comedy clubs of New York that Tayo Cousins first found his feet as a performer.

This is where his Nigerian-born father resides, and though his paternal relationship may be somewhat frayed, his biological link to the Big Apple has helped mould his effortless, confident style.

At just 20 years of age Tayo took home the panel prize from the coveted Beat the Frog World Series at The Frog and Bucket, a prize chosen by industry insiders. It’s not hard to see why. Though he is a relative newcomer to the comedy circuit, Tayo has tremendous star quality and he does a killer Morgan Freeman impression!

Definitely a bright young star to keep an eye on…
