Comedian New Favourite To Win 'Britain's Got Talent' After Non-PC Joke
There's a new favourite to win Britain's Got Talent following last night's live semi-final.
Daliso Chaponda, a Malawi-born comedian, has the audience (and judges) in stitches following a 'non-PC' joke.
Daliso said: "It's an amazing time to be alive. People say, 'I miss the good old days', but the good old days were terrible.
"We've got it amazing: We've got WiFi, we've got rights, women can vote.
"I'm black. 200 years ago, this would've been an auction."
Daliso is Amanda's 'Golden Buzzer' act. If he wins, he'll be the first one to take it all the way and pocket the £250k and the opportunity to perform at the Royal Variety.
He said: "Thank you Amanda for pushing that buzzer. Ever since then my life has been bonkers. People approaching me on the road saying, 'Well done' but the most common question I get is: 'You're from where? Is it Mali? Mawi?' It's Malawi.
"And if any of you don't know where that is, it's where Madonna adopted all the babies from. That's us. Yeah, you're jealous.
"I do miss my little brother."
He then added: "And Angelina [Jolie] took my sister, so..."
Continuing with his theme of non-PC, he then joked: "And I've been in the UK for a while, I was tricked into moving here. I was tricked. Because I was watching television, and I saw an angry guy come on and he said: 'Oh, these immigrants take all the good jobs, all the good women' and I was like, wow. That's what I'm looking for."
The judges were full of compliments after his performance with Amanda Holden saying: "This was even better than the last time we saw you.
"With comedy, it has to be very near the edge of edgeness, and you were so on the edge, it made us howl with laughter.
"And what's better, nobody can nick your material. You are unique and you really smashed it."
Simon Cowell added: "You are one of the funniest people we've had on this show.
"You're so fantastically non-PC, and that's part of the reason everyone likes you so much."
Since his performance, he's now overtaken the Missing People's Choir as the favourite to win with odds of 9-4 according to Ladbrokes.
Spokesperson for the betting site, Jessica Bridge, told Metro: "It's safe to say punters will be laughing all the way to the bank if Daliso wins BGT this year."
Tokio Myers is now the second favourite at 5/2, with Missing People Choir at 5/1.
The Britain's Got Talent final takes place on Saturday night on ITV from 7.30pm.
