Opeyemi "Opey" Olagbaju’s love and commitment to stand-up are always apparent on stage. The Los Angeles comic performs across the city and has successfully showcased in several festivals, such as the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, SF Sketchfest, the World Series of Comedy and previous NACA Showcases (2014 West & Central and 2015 Nationals). He is noted for his observational humor, which stems from his personal experiences as an immigrant from Nigeria who assimilated into American culture and society. Opey is currently a writer on Sarah Silverman’s I Love You America on Hulu. Through comedy, Opey explores what makes us different, and more importantly, how these differences make us all the same.

Opey's performance was tremendous. The crowd was engaged throughout the show. We even had a pasta bar to tie in with the last part of his set, where everything is about spaghetti. Thank you for being part of this team and I hope KP Comedy and SNHU can continue to have a great working relationship going forward.
