New Forest Comedy Festival standup comedy night with Emmanuel Sonubi and his Emancipated Tour

Emmanuel Sonubi is coming to New Forst Comedy Festival and he is performing at The Attic Comedy Club in Totton on Thursday 8th June.

Emmanuel Sonubi has quickly made a name for himself on the comedy scene, gaining notoriety for being ‘one to watch’. He has gone from being an open-spot performer to headlining BBC’s Live at the Apollo, demonstrating his immense potential as a rising star in the near future.

Fans in Southampton will have the chance to see his Emancipated Tour when he performs at Comedy Night.

“One of my favourite discoveries of the year was Emmanuel Sonubi. Hilarious, warm and unique. If you don’t see him now for a tenner, you won’t be able to smugly tell your mates about it when they’re paying £50 for a crap seat at the O2” – Jason Manford

Originally from North London, Emmanuel Sonubi grew up with five older sisters as the youngest of six siblings. His Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominated show gives a revealing insight into his life and how being enveloped by his family has moulded him into the man he is today.

“The bloke has got funny bones. He’s incredibly likeable despite looking like he could snap you in two” – Romesh Ranganathan

“Emmanuel is so incredibly funny, and I’m not just saying that because I’m scared of him” – Joel Dommett

“A new talent at the door of Stand-Up, his name’s down and he’s definitely coming in” – Russell Kane

In his “Emancipated” work, Emmanuel Sonubi reflects on his experiences as a doorman in some of London’s top nightclubs, musical theatre performances and being a parent to two young children. His comedic narration provides insight into how these episodes shaped how he thinks and feels today.

Tickets are available for £15 if purchased online in advance from The Attic Comedy Club in Totton, Southampton, or £18 at the door if places still remain

The comedian has made numerous television appearances on shows such as Comedy Central UK, The John Bishop Show for ITV1, The Stand Up Sketch Show for ITV2 and Sorry I Didn’t Know on ITV. He has also featured across BBC Radio programs like The Now Show, The Likely Dads and the Edinburgh Fringe Award Nominees show.

“Sonubi is a distinctive, classily polished act. His ascendancy appears assured” – The Scotsman

“Big laughs, engaging tales, you’re seduced by the easy authority of his storytelling” – The Guardian

“There’s no denying Sonubi his impeccable craft. If he’s shooting for a BBC One primetime slot, this is bang on target” – The List
