Kojo is fast becoming one of the biggest talents to come out of the urban comedy circuit. He has performed all over the world, including America, Holland, Ghana, Nigeria & Germany.

Kojo has appeared on MTV & MTV Base with THE FRESH PRINCE OF HACKNEY, THE YOUNG GODS OF COMEDY and two series of his own show, KOJO’S COMEDY FUNHOUSE. He also featured on the panel for the live BBC3 show FREE SPEECH where he discussed issues such as the unemployment rate for black men and drugs legalization.

In 2013, Kojo released the DVD of his sell-out Live ‘N’ Kicking Tour, recorded at Hackney Empire. Kojo was also asked to host the first ever DEF COMEDY JAM TOUR with music mogul Russell Simmons who is also one of Kojo’s idols and mentors.

He made his acting debut in Noel Clarke’s romantic comedy THE KNOT this year and was recently seen in the urban comedy movie IT’S A LOT and Series 2 of YOUNGERS for E4/Big Talk Productions.
