Nigerians are globally known for great talent and innovations, In Canada, this is no exception. The entertainment industry in Canada has witnessed a huge boom in terms of creative minds.
We had a chat with a trail blazer in the stand-up comedy industry in Canada Mr. Iruvwe Okeremute Don aka De Don.
The name surely rings a bell as the Ace broadcaster, actor and comedian has come a long way in the industry. The Delta State born is a Graduate of Economics from the Lagos State University.
He has since gained large audience in a short space of time in Canada with his friend/colleague; Mc Morris with their successful and Sold Out comedy club "Payday Laffs" which ran consecutively for three months.
He is one of the very funny Nigerian Canadian comedians I have ever come across. He started Stand-Up comedy show on Radio in Nigeria with his "Comedy Happy Hour with De-Don" show on Rainbow 94.1fm, the show opened international connections for the Delta State comedy ambassador.
De Don is an intelligent speaker who chooses his lines, context and creative jokes from far thinking routine jokes. This has earned him great respect in the industry.
We asked De Don if apart from comedy what other things he does. We were amazed as he also added he was an actor and Film producer. He is the Producer of De Real Don; showing on Africa Magic, De Don TV (on YouTube) and many other channels.
We went further to ask the pleasant and humble entertainer what his hobbies are, his response was: He likes making money, traveling and cooking.
As for his plans for 2022, the Don revealed he will be holding his first ever stand-up comedy show- special, titled ‘De Don Unblended’ Live in Canada.
He further added that the show will be the first of its kind with undiluted comedy; he said it will be a memorable moment for all attendees.
His public relations consultant revealed to us that De Don Unblended-special will be coming up in two different Provinces and the dates were already fixed.
He stated, De Don Unblended shall hold in Calgary on Friday April 15th and in Toronto on Saturday April 16th, 2022.
