Ghanaian comedy has come under the spotlight many times, mostly for the negative reasons. Many analysts say Ghanaian comedians are not funny.
Others say they do not speak good English therefore their inability to express themselves well. Others have compared them to their Nigerian counterparts claiming that the Nigerians are much better than Ghanaians.
Well, Laughline may have answered the question of whether or not the Ghanaian comedian is funny.
This month’s event which saw a packed auditorium had a theme centered on the rampant suicides the country has been experiencing and all the comedians did a joke or gave some advise on the negative effects of suicide.
It was a night of laughter and music as patrons who thronged the Silverbird cinemas were treated to great and hilarious jokes at the 7th edition of Laughline that saw comedians OB Amponsah, Foster Romanus, Nino and James Brown.
