There Is Money in Ghanaian Comedy but The Problem Is Event Organizers – Clemento Suarez
Among the many issues that confront the Ghanaian comedy industry, Clemento Suarez has mentioned event organizers as part of their problems.
He disclosed that the comedy industry is supposed to be profitable except for organizers who do not pay them what they are due. The event organizers always shortchange the comedians.
“Comedy is supposed to pay-off but the organizers don’t pay what is due us. The corporate sponsors pay for the shows but the event organizers are not willing to pay us exactly what the sponsors have paid for in the budget,” Clemento Suarez revealed.
The comedian who in 2020 got featured on Voice of Africa in his interview with Sokoo Hemaa on Rainbow Fm on Wednesday, July 15, 2020, further disclosed that event organizers do not respect comedians.
“The event organizers are the people disrespecting the comedy craft,” he said.
“Some will plan and call you a day to a gig and go like, your name just came up during the preparations and we would want you to pass through. You may follow such vibe and end up receiving 100 cedis. Some won’t even give you anything,” the comedian added.
Responding to the issue of insults that has become a common feature in most comedy performances, Clemento Suarez explained that to be one-off features when it becomes a necessary part of the materials for that performance.
He also mentioned insults to be part of life and urged Ghanaians to appreciate any comedian who is able to deliver it in a funny way.
