London based Emmanuel Sonubi has only been on the comedy circuit for what feel like five minutes and he’s already garnering himself a reputation as one to watch out for…
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 at The Comedy Store, The Glee Club, Comedy Loft, The Comedy Café, Top Secret Club, Butlin’s Weekenders, 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)
