Michael Akadiri: Trust Me, I’m a Daddy

11th September 2024

Following his Biggest Award in Comedy nominated debut and subsequent hit tour, multi-award-winning comedian and junior doctor Michael Akadiri arrives in Leeds with his sophomore show, Trust Me I’m a Daddy.

Get your mind out of the gutter – Not that sort of daddy! He’s merely become a father.

“The supremely talented and likeable” (Metro) Michael has long juggled comedy and medicine but now he’s thrown parenting into the mix too. Surely, something must give?!

Join this ”‘hugely entertaining” (Chortle) comedian as he navigates the real-life obstacle course of childrearing, parenting under the ‘junior doctor gaze’ and ultimately the true sacrifices required of a daddy.

As seen on Comedy Central LIVE, ITVs Stand Up Sketch & Channel 4s Stand Up to Cancer.

As heard on Capital Xtra’s Breakfast Show, BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends and Times Radio.

Winner – Komedia New Comedy Award / Winner – Comedian of Medicine Award, Haags Comedy Festival / NextUp Biggest Award in Comedy nominee / Featured in The Guardian’s Top 12 jokes of the Edinburgh Fringe / Featured in The Telegraph’s Top 20 jokes of the Edinburgh Fringe / Recommended to see by the Evening Standard.
