Nosa Afolabi, nicknamed Lasisi Elenu, a well-known comedian and skit creator, has claimed that stand-up comedy requires more work than creating skits.
The comedian, who was born in Kwara, Nigeria, recently spoke with Hip TV on the disparities in pay and amount of labor required for stand-up comedy versus skit-writing.
Both stand-up comedy and creating skits have a different feel, according to Lasisi Elenu. The pressure to succeed is great in stand-up comedy. You must be at the top of your game and have a variety of resources on hand so that you can always improvise if one isn’t up to par. It’s crucial to take that action.
“However, creating skits has grown to be a part of who I am; I can do it whenever the mood strikes, even when I’m asleep. I am capable of tuning myself in. Yes, making skits and performing stand-up comedy are both profitable. All that matters is how you channel… In really, what matters is how intelligently you work, not how hard.
“So, it’s not about producing the most parody films; it’s about how effectively you direct the videos to the appropriate plugs and brand them so that you can profit from them. Stand-up comedy or crafting skits, in my opinion, can help you achieve your financial goals.
