I heard there is a new comedian in town. Well, he’s not very new. All I know is, he gives very amusing answers. I can’t call them cheeky, because that would be rude. I can’t say they are witty, that would make his head big. I follow him on Facebook, so I know what I am talking about.
That was just by the way.
chemical Khemikal can make you laugh. Too much
laughing gas can make you laugh.
Sorry, for the lame introduction.
Marietta: Why the name Khemikal? Is there a story behind your name?
Khemikal: I was the one of the best students in my school and in my class. And a good science student. A friend gave me the name because I was truant and never stable with class and studies.
Marietta: Oh wow. Thanks to him.
Marietta: Who would you say are your influences in the comedy world?
Khemikal: Trevor Noah, Eddie Griffin, George Carlin
Marietta: And how did you meet comedy? Because being a Science student and doing stand-up comedy doesn’t seem to match.
Khemikal: I started when I was in my last year at the University of Ghana. I was advised to do it and I did.
Marietta: What do you do apart from being a stand-up comedian?
Khemikal: Well I can do a lot of things and that's kinda annoying cuz I still don't know what do choose. I wanted to attend medical school but finance prevented me.
|Like this one???|
Marietta: Oh ok. Do you think that if you were to be a medical doctor, you would still be a comedian?
Khemikal: Honestly, I don’t know. But if you insist on a definite answer, I’d say yes.
Marietta: What was the best gig you ever performed?
Marietta: What is the dumbest rumour you have heard about yourself?
Khemikal: Never heard any
Marietta: Tell us a day in the life of Daniel Selase.
Khemikal: I sleep….and think….and read sometimes…..and listen to music….and write code small
Marietta: Really? What do you read?
Khemikal: Opinions, science fiction, motivation, text books, religious texts.
Marietta: Suggest three books for us to read.
Khemikal: Angels and Demons, Da Vinci Code, Year of the Hangman and the Prophet by Khalil Gibran
Marietta: Ok. What kind of music do you enjoy?
Khemikal: Any. Once it’s nice, I’ll listen. But my favourite music artiste is Sia.

Marietta: Amen. What is your most embarrassing memory from childhood?
