The production of skits and other entertainment has grown into a tremendously lucrative but fiercely competitive business over the past several years.
But in 2022, a young comic by the name of Funnybros emerged and, with his own brand of humor, grabbed the whole skit-making industry by the jugular.
In this essay, Thecuteceleb briefly examines some of Funnybros’ rise in the comic book industry, his history, and his main influences.
1. Where was Funnybros born, and what is his full name:
The true name of Funnybros is Onwuka Ugochukwu Richard. The rising comedian is from the state of Anambra.
He was reared in the country’s south-eastern region of Aba, Abia state, where he attended both primary and high school.
2. How old is Funnybros, and when was he born?
Funnybros, who was born on July 26, 2000, may be recognized as a true member of Generation Z. However, the 22-year-old had a difficult upbringing because he lost his mother when he was a very young age and had to learn how to exist without a mother from a very young age.
He previously claimed in an interview that Sabinus was one of the main influences on him and the reason he started doing skits.
3. Which university did he attend, and what course did he study?
Physical science is Onwuka’s field of study at Abia State University. He is a 300-level undergraduate student at the tertiary institution in the Southeast.
Funnybros said in a recent interview that despite having always been an actor from a young age, he just started producing skits in 2019 while enrolled in Abia State University’s 100-level courses.
5. How did he become a Comedian?
After joining the theater and acting club at his parent’s church, Funnybros began his career as an entertainer at an early age through the church.
While he said that he first joined the group as an actress, he eventually realized that he was a natural joker. In an interview with the Vanguard newspaper, Onwuka disclosed that he had seen how easily he could make people laugh with his voice, gestures, and facial expressions.
And in this way, he deliberately and gradually started establishing his comedic outlook.
6. Other talents apart from comedy and his most significant influence?
The talented young actor is also a successful musician who has put out several albums and songs. Songs like Account Number, Oru nakwu ugwo, Odiram Easy ft. Yung Daddy, and Enwe Otu Oshi Mee can be found in his discography.
His distinctive manner of carrying a “Ghana must-go bag” and dressed for a country environment makes him simple to identify. He gained fame for spreading the slang term “Ikotaram,” which is crucial to the image.
