Why skit-making is easier than stand up comedy – Lasisi Elenu

Nosa Afolabi, nicknamed Lasisi Elenu, a well-known comedian and skit creator, has claimed that stand-up comedy requires more work than skit-making 

The humorist, who was born in Kwara, recently spoke with Hip TV on the disparities in pay and amount of work required for stand-up comedy versus script creation.

Lasisi Elenu said, “Both [stand-up comedy and skit-making] have a different feel. There is a lot of pressure in stand-up comedy. You’ve to be on your A-game, and you have to make several materials ready in case you use one and it’s not that good, you can always improvise. It’s very important to do that.

“However, skit-making has become a part of me; one which I can do at anytime, any moment, from sleep, it’s a go for me. I know how to put myself in tune. Yeah, both [stand-up comedy and skit-making] are lucrative. It just depends on how you channel… As a matter of fact, it’s not how hard you work but how smart you work.

“So, it’s not about making the most skit videos, it’s how well you channel the videos to the right plugs go brand them in such a way that in turn you get financial reward for them. I believe either skit-making or stand-up comedy can give you the financial gains you’re looking for.”
