Malawian born comedian, Daliso Chaponda, performed an amazing first audition. But did he do enough to earn himself a Golden Buzzer?
Daliso Chaponda is an Malawian stand-up comedian. He is best known for placing third in the 11th series of the variety act competition, Britain’s Got Talent 2017.
Chaponda began his career back in 2001 while he was in Canada.
To hone his craft, he focused on stand-up clubs and open mic nights. His very first headlining show, Feed This Black Man, was at Concordia University in 2002.
In 2006, he moved to the United Kingdom where he opened for other comedians such as John Bishop. During this period, he appeared in venues in the United Kingdom, as well as abroad in South Africa and Australia.
In 2008, he appeared in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe’s “Best of the Fest”.
In 2009, he performed for the first time in Malawi. The same year, he also opened for Canadian comedian Sugar Sammy in Dubai and Jordan.
In 2012, Chaponda made a joke about the Malawian flag during one of his “Laughrica” shows in Malawi. The government subsequently threatened to arrest him for insulting the flag.

He will leave you in tears, I promise!
