Michael Odewale is taking the comedy world by storm. A performer with commanding stage presence and a comedy style that cleverly intertwines social commentary, with current affairs and of course quick wit, it’s no wonder Michael was named on the BBC New Talent Host List of 2017. Equally at ease performing to sold-out theatres as he is with small corporate functions, Michael is the ideal choice for private events, offering side-splitting one-liners, everyone can enjoy.
Taking to the stage, full of swagger, Michael is a clever comedian. The type of comic that gets an audience thinking with his accurate social commentary, no topic is off-limits for Michael who is known to address politics, economics, and racism. Starting his comedy career whilst still studying at university, Michael first took to the stand-up scene in 2014 and was an instant hit with crowds. From one-liners to jokes that slowly build to an eruption of laughter, his versatility and talent for the craft led to demand and he began taking his act on tour in 2017.
A prestigious event for any performer, it was only a matter of time before Michael Odewale made his Edinburgh Fringe debut.
