Can Politics And Comedy Be In One Basket?

Simple put, Comedy being stand up or skit means professional entertainment consisting of jokes and sketches intended to put smiles on the faces of selected odds. Nevertheless, politics is totally the opposite. with Politics, politicians of different political parties and background battles each other for higher positions, but at the trend at which Politics has branched , it looks no difference from comedy. Mostly, comedians gather and organised shows to put smiles on the faces of the attended audience (Public), but not all the audience gets satisfied with what they witness which at times sparks controversies among the comedians that who get the muscles to pull the crowd.

Comedians battle themselves, crack jokes making sure the audience laugh and gets  value for their monies,but with Politics, it has it own trend and strategies it indulges. They campaign and battle each other for supremacy. The only thing that looks alike is the platform or stage. But in recent times, looking at some scenes from Political campaigns, rally’s, meetings, gatherings as well as press conferences it clearly shows no different from comedy.

Now politics contains more comic effects than the comedy itself. Some comedians spend time cracking jokes after jokes to make people laugh but at the end  you see a section of the audience quiet as if they are up for something else making them feel cheated because they did not meet their expectations. On the other hand,just a quote or statement from some politicians will blow your mind and make you laugh that you will be ready to pay for their services if they stage up a comedy show. Even till date some comedians depends on quotes from politicians to entertain their audience. A typical example is when a D.C.E out of anger busted out ‘who said tweaaa, are you my co-equal?’. It become a slogan and some comedians stand tall on it and crack jokes around it.

Some moves and scenes from Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling N.P.P Chairman Wontumi can perfectly fix into comic skits. Again, just a statement from the NDC general secretary Asiedu Nketia or Abronye DC is a total stand up comedy. Hawa Koomson pulling a gun at E.C registration center, a full political comedy scene. The list can go on and on.

Cutting across borders, some quotes from former Zimbabwe President late Robert Mugabe, US president Donald Trump just to mention few simply tells how politics and comedy can be put into one basket. If that is the case, then i think politicians should merged with comedians during  campaigns to build a strategic approach with comic effects to convenience the masses through their comedy and entertainment to vote for them.

In one way or the other, i don’t know whether our politicians are motivated by our comedians or our comedians are motivated by our politicians or better still they should be put into one basket.

The contents was so bad and affront to our Ghanaian Cultures, Traditions, and Sensibilities.

The Film FIPAG wishes to render an unqualified apology to the general public and man involved for her behavior as that display of character does represent what the film industry stands for or wishes to propagate.
