Nigerian comedian, Okey Bakassi has argued stand-up comedy is way tougher than all forms of acting.
In an interview with Hip Tv, the comic act said he finds stand-up comedy more tasking than acting because in acting, you get to edit and retake scripts if they aren’t good enough.
But noted it’s a whole different ball game with stand-up comedy where there are no rooms for mistakes.
He said: “For me, in my whole career, the toughest is stand-up comedy, anyways. It is tougher than anything else.
For me, if I can do stand-up comedy, the other ones are piece of cake. Because, you get the opportunity to make mistakes in the other ones, edit, post-production and all that.
“But with stand-up comedy, live audience, you and your microphone, no margin for error.
