Taskmaster’s Munya Chawawa will be heading out on the road on his very first headline tour in 2023. 

The comedian has confirmed he’ll be heading out on his debut tour, kicking things off with shows in Leicester and Manchester on 5th October, before finishing things off in Edinburgh on 28th. 

While audiences are loving Munya on Channel 4’s Taskmaster, the funnyman got his start on social media, making hilarious parody videos for his 1.4 million TikTok followers, before exploding onto the telly scene. 

His rapid-fire observations and original characters will make it into his stage show, with the likes of TV chef Jonny Oliver and rapper Unknown P expected to make an appearance. 

As well as Taskmaster, Munya is also the creator and presenter of Race Around Britain, which was the first YouTube original series to be nominated for a BAFTA prize. 

Munya has also appeared on the likes of BBC One’s Celebrity MasterChef, BBC Three’s Munya and Filly Get Chilly and Channel 4’s The Last Leg.

Munya Chawawa’s UK headline dates: 

  • Thu 5 October   O2 Academy Leicester, Leicester

  • Fri 6 October     O2 Ritz, Manchester

  • Thu 12 October O2 City Hall Newcastle, Newcastle

  • Fri 13 October   O2 Academy Birmingham, Birmingham

  • Sat 14 October  O2 Forum Kentish Town, London

  • Thu 19 October O2 Academy Edinburgh, Edinburgh

  • Sat 21 October  Liverpool University (Mountford Hall), Liverpool

  • Thu 26 October O2 Guildhall Southampton, Southampton

  • Fri 27 October   O2 Academy Bournemouth, Bournemouth

Munya won his very first episode of Taskmaster during last night’s episode (17th November), and finally managed to take home some prizes, which featured lots of fancy dress. 

Speaking of Taskmaster, 2019 contestant David Baddiel recently appeared on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show with Sky, and insisted he was the worst celeb to appear on the series. 

David ended up finishing last in series nine of the hilarious Channel 4 comedy game show, and admitted to Chris and the team that people still approach him to ask about his experience going up against Greg Davies and (Little) Alex Horne. 

“I was the worst contestant they’ve ever had,” David exclaimed. “I feel this very strongly because on Taskmaster, you can either be great at it, or you can win in another way, which is to be really terrible at all the tasks, in a not self-conscious way, I just was. Then as far as I could make out, people love you for that.”
