Tipped by Drake, Stormzy and Anthony Joshua amongst many others, Mo Gilligan is one of UK’s fastest rising stand up stars with an online reach running into the multiple millions. With his high-energy style and stunning physicality, Mo achieved phenomenal success in 2017 creating his own short form comedy content across a range of platforms, with huge viewer engagement. His sketches regularly go viral, trend and are endorsed by some of the most famous names in international music.
Mo first made his name as a stand up on the black comedy circuit, regularly playing iconic venues such as The Hackney Empire, O2 & Bloomsbury Theatre. Last year he went on to win Best Comedian award at the Black British Entertainment Awards after totally selling out his 2017 run of the ‘Coupla Cans’ run. Smashing all records for a debut stand up tour, Mo is currently on another massive leg of unmissable UK dates, many of which sold out within minutes of being released. The show combines Mo’s trademark everyman style, with high-energy routines and astute comedic observations.
He’s already collaborated with the likes of The BET Awards in Los Angeles, appeared as a brand ambassador for Adidas alongside Stormzy, sent Instagram into a meltdown when international superstar Drake quoted one of his catchphrases, hosted Tinie Tempah’s Ibiza closing party performing to over 10,000 people, recorded his own huge Friday night entertainment show with Big Narstie for Channel 4 and racked up over 12 million hits to date of his set on The Russell Howard Hour for Sky One.
Without doubt, Mo Gilligan is very much comedy’s next big thing.
