One of Nigeriaâ€™s leading comedians, Julius Agwu continues to climb several rungs on the ladder of success every year. With two-Crack Ya Ribs and Laff 4 Christâ€™s Sake-viable projects in comedy, he is still not resting on his oars.
Every year, these projects are made to travel to a new destination, usually owing to demand from fans. Some of Nigeriaâ€™s major cities are already locked down for either Crack Ya Ribs or Laff 4 Christâ€™s Sake.
Apart from Abuja and Lagos, other cities which have experienced Juliusâ€™ comic train include, Enugu, Port Harcourt and Jos.
Satisfied that he has enough goodwill at home and that his charity was properly anchored, Julius set out to popularise his act outside the shores of Nigeria. So far, he has established his reputation as a comedian in the UK and in the US.
The success of Julius who also goes by the alias, â€˜dâ€™geniusâ€™ may not be unconnected with the business savvy that he brings to bear on his projects.
By simply making sure that he does not walk and work alone, he noly expands the popularity of his shows but identifies capable individuals and corporate bodies to share the financial burden of putting up the show.
This year, for instance, the Crack Ya Ribs event which holds on Sunday, August 26 at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja is being energised (sponsored) by International Energy Insurance.
Aero Contractors is also providing support by flying some of the valued guests and production crew in and out of Abuja.
Crack Ya Ribs was the first comedy show to be staged at the prestigious Hilton Hotel. As the fifth edition of the show in Abuja returns to its root, the hotel is giving Julius more than a handshake in the form of support. There are other sponsors also who realise the essence of corporate social responsibility.
