The Interplay of Humour and Activism in Nigerian Comedy


Academic Paper, 2020

8 Pages, Grade: 95


Abstract or Introduction

This study seeks to delve into how some Nigerian comedians subtly critique the Nigerian political scene. Hence, the study aims to see how these artistic works have been a tool of youth activism with a special reference to the #EndSars protest.

There are obvious shreds of evidence that point to the fact that comedy is a powerful and untapped storytelling genre to raise awareness, incite action to human rights and social justice, change attitudes, especially amongst the youths. Despite this significance, comedy is underexplored.
