Basketmouth thinks a number of comedians are taking the easy way out by doing skits rather than actually doing standup comedy.

The award-winning comedian made this known during the recently held annual Social Media Week held in Lagos where he was a panelist. According to him, he still does not see enough comedians taking time to hone the craft of stand-up comedy. Expressing his displeasure with comedians who take the easy route of only creating skits.

"There's nothing like a good joke. A joke can always be improved and even I often share some of my jokes with fellow comedians and they tell me it’s okay but tell me how to make it better. Doing skits on social media is very different from performing on stage. There is no filter on stage,'' he said.
