Foster Romanus Discusses What He Believes The Comedy Industry Requires In Addition To Assistance.

According to well-known comedian from Ghana Foster Romanus, the country’s comedy scene would gain a great deal by the opening of additional venues.

On May 12, 2024, he made a special appearance for Yes Ghana Online Entertainment and mentioned that one of the biggest problems affecting Ghanaian comedians is the lack of performance spaces outside of Accra.

He proposed that more of these kinds of institutions will help the nation’s cultural and economic fabric as well as comedians by broadening their audience base.

“We require a large number of venues. In other places, a comedian visits different regions of the nation after finishing a program because people need to see him.

However, you don’t really make anything money outside of Accra, where the National Theatre is located, because there aren’t any theaters to host your performances.

“But you can tour the entire country and get the numbers if we have such venues outside of Accra,” he remarked.

Foster Romanus gave his thoughts on the situation of the comedy business in Ghana and its future prospects. He said that the country’s comedy scene is looking bright because more comedians from other regions are coming to the country and creating a stir there.

He declared, “The future of comedy is very bright. There are comedians outside of Accra putting up their own shows and getting their names known.”

Foster Romanus made this statement at the 25th TGMA Xperience in Cape Coast, where a number of performers performed for the delight of the locals. These performers included Adina, Black Sherif, Kofi Kinaata, and Stonebwoy.

The occasion, which happened on May 11, 2024, in Cape Coast’s Robert Mensah Stadium, laid the groundwork for an incredible awards ceremony scheduled on 1 July 2024.
