MY BIGGEST COMEDY INFLUENCES | CHIMEFRANCIS

Before I began doing Standup Comedy In 2014, I had studied a few great comics.

I watched tons of videos of comedians who plied their trade both home and abroad.

I learnt a lot from many of them but I was fascinated with a few of them.

These few comedians over time have influenced me through their work ethic, their process, their book, there stage carriage alongside their performances.

They have made a great impact in my Standup Comedy Career.

Today I decided to Share with you the Comedians who Have influenced my choices most part of 2014 till date.

With no particular order, they are;

BOVI
TREVOR NOAH
FOREVER
KEVIN HART
CHRIS ROCK

One thing that will help you as a Standup Comic is to allow yourself be influenced a little by those who have done it at the highest level.

I have read books by Trevor & Kevin and they helped me at that period.

Joke writing and Telling.
Stage mannerism and the use of mic stand I got from Bovi.

Forever’s branding was it for me.

Chris Rock’s commentary on Political issues gives me jitters.

They have all been a big blessing to me and my Craft.
