President Obonjo returns to Edinburgh Festival Fringe to perform his new show, The Rise of a Comedy Dictator. In the age of Trump, populism and Brexit, the world probably doesn't need another bloated ego pretending to give easy solutions. Thankfully, what we need is a comedy character who skewers them with precision, hilarity and who isn't afraid at showing vulnerability. President Obonjo leads a Comedy Revolution.
