Akau Jambo

Akau Jambo is a South Sudanese Stand-Up Comedian with a body of work that transcends nationalities  and borders . Akau’s comedy is a mix of sociopolitical criticism and autobiographical reflections on his life and that of his mates. Drawing on the realities of being a South Sudanese who was born and raised up as a Refugee in Kenya & Uganda. He does this in a self deprecating manner, traversing various issues facing today’s societies.

Since his debut in 2016, Akau has toured his special “The Woke Refugee” across Africa featuring in Comedy Festivals and Comedy Clubs in South Africa, Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania & Botswana. 

At the peak of the Pandemic, Akau took part of the UNHCR’s Luquluqu tribe comedy show dubbed “Africa is a continent, African is a Country ''. This was an online comedy show aimed at raising funds to support refugees affected by COVID in the camps. The show was able to raise $150,000. Akau considers this as one of his greatest milestones as he was able to give back to his fellow refugees in the camps.
