TV Times - - Live Special -

Dal­iso, 37, who was born in

Malawi, en­tered his first open mic night while he was study­ing at uni­ver­sity in

Montreal. The comic, who now lives in Manch­ester, had ev­ery­one in stitches dur­ing his au­di­tion with a rib-tick­ling rou­tine that com­bined his African roots with his ex­pe­ri­ences of liv­ing in Bri­tain. Amanda says: ‘self-dep­re­cat­ing, bril­liant. It was laugh af­ter laugh!’ Dal­iso says: ‘When Amanda pressed the golden buzzer it was nuts! It was the last thing I ex­pected, so I didn’t ac­tu­ally re­act prop­erly for around an hour; I was just over­whelmed. Peo­ple have been so sup­port­ive. I’m walk­ing down the street and peo­ple yell out ‘good luck’. My next per­for­mance will be even fun­nier – pre­pare to be sur­prised!’ Buzzed by Amanda

Dal­iso got the nod from Amanda
