It was a gathering of celebrities as the second edition of Lagos Laughs held on Sunday, May 6, 2018 to mark World Laughter Day. Gracing the event were actors such as Ramsey Nouah,  Deyemi Okanlawon, Nse Ikpe Etim, Toyin Abraham, Linda Ejiofor, Gifty Powers, Kunle Afolayan and BBNaija’s Anto and Ahneeka.

Also in attendance were the Lagos State governor who was represented by Senator Olamilekan Adeola ‘Yayi’, Lagos State Commissioner for Information, Mr Steve Ayorinde and minister for information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.

Comedians which performed included SeyiLaw, Gordons, Gbenga Adeyinka, Omobaba, Basketmouth, Kennyblaq, SACO, DeeOne, Princess, Woli Arole, Lasisi Elenu, Koffi, to the 15 upcoming comedians that contested live on stage as part of the Ibile Comedy Challenge
Also on stage to provide music were DJ Bell Cheque, DJ Consequence and the Shuga Band led by polio ambassador, Mr Akin Shuga.

 A highlight of the show was the stage drama that humoured the Big Brother Naija housemates. Frank Donga and EmmaOhMaGod were the judges and comedian Ebiye was the police officer to bring in the culprits. Instagram sensation, Josh2Funny came on stage as Alex and eventually as Tobi.

The judge gave their comedic verdicts to the applause of the audience but nothing could prepare the audience for the entrance of fast rising comedian, Mc Lively who posed as Collins (the supposed ex-boyfriend of Nina) and came to vent his anger to Nina and the judges.

Alhaji Mohammed commended Lagos State for being the art-loving state and for supporting the comedy industry and other arts, the same feelins shared by comedians TeeA and Gbenga Adeyinka.
And speaking, Mr Ayorinde made it clear that the administration of Governor Ambode decided to put its weight behind Lagos Laughs 2018 as part of effort to make Lagos the most thriving place for art and culture.

“We are impressed with today’s showing,” he said.

“I am not dissapointed at all. The show represent our resolve to put the Nigerian comedy industry on a pedestal with that of other parts of the world. It shows how we are deeply interested in putting smiles on Lagosians faces and more importantly, it represent how we are positioning Lagos as the tourism hub of Africa. The administration of Governor Ambode will always do everything within its powers to push art and culture in an unusual way.”
