Daliso Chaponda has announced a 2019 into 2020 tour.

The stand-up comedian, who was a finalist on Britain's Got Talent, will tour his new show Blah Blah Blacklist between September and March. The 36 dates will follow on from his run at this year's Edinburgh Festival in August.

His promoters say: "In his hilarious, daring new show, Blah Blah Blacklist, Daliso looks at disgraced blacklisted celebrities and historical figures we're ashamed we once admired and who now have let us down. There's also the small matter of family member arrests, exploding buildings in his home country, the enterprising Malawian who tried to blackmail Daliso and being accused by some of his own community that he's 'not Black enough'...

"His father was a refugee who became an admired and respected Malawian diplomat until false accusations against him caused a backlash. He was proved innocent but naively thought that being cleared of charges would clear his name in public opinion. Daliso discusses this and how social media does not care about court decisions!

"He talks about the angry reception to some of last year's show and mocks the racists that decided to hate him because of one difference in opinion. He also discusses people who have been 'cancelled' and the absurdity of thinking you can remove all trace of somebody because you disagree with them. People wanted to cancel him after saying on live TV that he didn't think Lord Sugar was racist!"

Last year, Chaponda presented his own stand-up series Citizen of Nowhere. A second series has been ordered. He is also currently creating and curating an exhibit for Liverpool World Museums on Colonial artefacts.

Talking about his success on the stage, his promoters say: "The Malawian born stand-up shot to fame and captured the hearts of the nation on Britain's Got Talent where he reached the final and was Amanda Holden's Golden Buzzer act. He has gone on to amass an outstanding 200 million plus YouTube and Facebook views! His last stand-up show What The African Said sold out a 50 + date UK tour and received much critical acclaim."
