Khemikal Comedian 20150104_115726

Born Daniel Selase, Comedian Khemikal has

indicated that he finds comedy as one of the

strongest mode of communication, hence

“Communicating with people in the comic

form has been always been the easiest way for

me to communicate with people aside it being

a passion.”

“It is the flexible way I communicate my

thoughts and sentiments to others in order for

them to easily relate, learn, and utilize the

information that I share with them,” he added.

According to him, “I love making people

happy, it takes them out of their worries and

anytime I make someone laugh or make

someone happy, I feel happy myself.”

Gaining his inspiration from personal

experiences as well as the experiences of

others, “the fact that people applaud me for

my works anytime I’m done performing is also

something that uplifts my urge to make people

laugh their hearts outs.”

He added that he is also inspired by watching

other stand-up comedians and satirists

perform including great comics enthuse like

KSM, DKB, and Foster, “I love what they do

and the fact that they love what they are

doing; it overwhelms my desire to look up to

them the more.”

He mentioned other role models like South

African comic, Trevor Noah; Eddie Griffin and

Dave Chappelle in the United States of

America and the lates, Richard Pryor and

George Carlin.

Outlining his ‘2015 To-Achieve’ list, Khemikal

said, “4-years down the comedy lane, I am

working on becoming a satirist and a social

commentator where I can use my humor to

point out and address issues that needs to be

taken serious in the society.”

“There are a lot of problems that needs to be

addressed but it appear no one wants to care,

but this year, I will step up my game to do

that. I want to see myself as one of the

influential and biggest stand up comedians in

Ghana and Africa before the year ends,” he


With his style of blending comic-chemical,

Khemikal has performed on such platforms as

‘Corporate Comedy Series’ by David Oscar;

‘DKB Live Tour’; ‘Comedy Fiesta’ by Foster;

‘Comedy Bar’ and recently, ‘KSM at 58’.

He has as well various Television appearances

like ‘The One Show’ and ‘Boys Boys’ both on
