Standup Comedy Is Dying Gradually- Helen Paul

by Oluwamuyiwa Oyedele

Popular Comedienne Helen Paul in a recent interview has said that skit-making in the comedy industry is gradually pushing stand-up comedy into extinction.

She made the assertion while speaking with Punch Newspaper on Challenges bedeviling the stand-up comedy industry

Her Statement Reads:

“Nowadays, people rely more on filters and editing measures to create content. While there are advantages to those stunts and effects, the effect is that the content makers don’t master the craft of stage performances. It is a different ball game entirely. With this might come a risk of comedy fans losing interest in and developing lethargy for standup comedy. The thrill of purchasing tickets and driving all the way to a standup comedy event might be lost. Why would anyone want to lose sleep over a standup comedy show when he or she could just watch it in the comfort of his or her home on a mammoth-sized curved TV with surround stereo speakers?”

Meanwhile, the ace comedienne recently was honored by a University in the US where she currently lives
