The tour now has 52 dates, and Daliso has also been confirmed for his own Radio 4 series entitled ‘Daliso Chaponda: Citizen Of Nowhere’.

Daliso Chaponda said: “Laughter is how I cope with pain.

“I have seen and experienced some horrible things but laughter helped me cope.

“Telling jokes is repaying the favour.

“This show is my thanks to the laughter.”

Daliso Chaponda, originally from Malawi, has lived in countries where the press is not allowed to criticise the government, and in others with no libel laws where they can say anything.

He has been both a journalist and a jaded newsreader, and through this he discusses what the media has become in his new show ‘What African Said…’.

The show is about recent news, old news, fake news, and stories that were never quite but were almost news.

It is also a show about gossip, tall stories and declarations of love.

Tickets for the show are priced at ÂŁ16.50 per person and you can purchase them online.

You can keep up to date with Daliso by following him on Facebook and Twitter.

You can also watch him in action here.
