Nelson Tinashe Gombakomba Junior is an observational stand-up comedian. His comedy is purely driven by the need to seek the truth, knowledge and a little bit of justice in life. His material is intended to be educational, not in the way a teacher lectures a student, but in the way friends exchange ideas and discuss their problems with one another. Since winning UEA’s Got Talent in 2015 and taking the Runner-Up spot in 2017’s Piccadilly Comedian of The Year, Nelson has won the King Gong at London’s Comedy Store and Manchester’s brutal Beat the Frog, is regularly featured on BBC Norfolk’s New Comedy Show, and has gone on to host his own monthly comedy night in Norwich.
