Following his Biggest Award in Comedy nominated debut and subsequent hit tour, multi-award-winning comedian and junior doctor Michael Akadiri arrives in Newcastle with his sophomore show, Trust Me I’m a Daddy.

Get your mind out of the gutter - Not that sort of daddy!

He’s merely become a father.


“The supremely talented and likeable” (Metro) Michael has long juggled comedy & Medicine but now he’s thrown parenting into the mix too. Surely, something must give?!

Join this ”‘hugely entertaining” (Chortle) comedian as he navigates the real-life obstacle course of childrearing, parenting under the ‘junior doctor gaze’ and ultimately the true sacrifices required of a daddy.

As seen on Comedy Central LIVE, ITVs Stand Up Sketch & Channel 4s Stand Up to Cancer.

As heard on Capital Xtra’s Breakfast Show, BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends & Times Radio.

Winner - Komedia New Comedy Award
Winner - Comedian of Medicine Award, Haags Comedy Festival
NextUp Biggest Award in Comedy nominee
