Your Detty December in Lagos Isn’t Complete Without This Comedy Show

Have you ever ordered a new meal on a menu (trying to be adventurous) and instantly hated it?

It’s such a huge gamble to try something new. It may be great, or it may be absolutely terrible. That is why people go for “specials” or ask for people’s favourite at a restaurant because they know that the chances of it being good are high.

This is how you should pick where you will spend your Detty December splurge fund. 

When it comes to choosing where to spend your hard-earned coins, you want to attend shows with a track record of consistent positive reviews. What are people saying on the show’s social media pages?

Don’t waste your Detty December funds on an event you’ll end up hating.

Now, if you’re not familiar with the term Detty december then allow me to get you acquainted.

What Is Detty December in Lagos?

Detty December in Lagos

Detty December is the much anticipated time of the month of December when Nigerians (Lagosians mostly) and Black diasporans (popularly known as the I-Just-Got-Backs aka IJGBs) return to Nigerian (Lagos mostly) to have mad fun, chop life, and attend a hefty line-up of events that range from festivals to concerts to shows and events to celebrate the successful end of the year.

There’s nothing quite like Christmas in Lagos and that is why it is the home of Detty December in Nigeria.

Now that we’ve got that out the way, let’s explore the important matters arising.

What You Should Consider When Choosing the Shows to Attend This Detty December.


As you may know, Detty December is marked with high traffic levels. I mean, the traffic level in Lagos is already high on a normal day, but in December it turns pro max. So when choosing the shows you’ll go for, you may want to consider what days will have less traffic ( think Sunday). 

I guess it’s a good thing that Yang & Filo (A comedy show about internet fraudsters and their victims) will be happening on a Sunday. Mark this as the number one reason to attend.


Another thing you should consider is how long that show has been running. Have they successfully organized the same shows in the past years? What are people saying about the show? If you’re not seeing a slew of positive reviews, run! You may end up regretting going.

A Billion laughs, the conveners of Yang & Filo have this on lockdown. They have a great track record of hosting amazing comedy shows for Detty December and month after month throughout the year.


Does the price match the offering? Will you pay for a 30k ticket only to stand and sweat? After the road gymnastics, you maneuvered to get there? It’s a no please, let’s be guided.

You want a show with Air conditioning (Lagos heat is real), comfortable seats, and an amazing ambiance. You deserve luxury, you have toiled this year, and you need this. 

Insert Yang and Filo premium tickets that offer you these amazing perks:

  • A comfy seat with a full & uninterrupted view of the Yang & Filo live show.
  • Access to delicious complimentary food and drink.
  • Exclusive sitting position for fast-track entrance and exit.
  • Bonus: The best night out of your life!
  • Did I mention there’ll be food?

There are more ticket options depending on your budget.

When it comes to comedy shows in Lagos, ABL doesn’t miss. In fact ABL is on a mission to elevate the face of standup comedy in Nigeria.
