Basket Mouth AKA Bright Okpocha first dabbled in comedy in the year 1995 and started his professional comedy career four years later.
By the year 2000, Basket Mouth was already on his way to making his mark in the industry.

He also performed at a concert called ‘Hanging Out With The Home Boys’’ and because of the audience’s love of his brand of humour, the show extended his activities to the Monthly Motherland Concert hosted by no-other than Lagbaja. But Basket Mouth officially became a household name after he was introduced to Opa Williams by Alibaba who went on to feature him in the legendary Night Of A Thousand Laughs and the rest, as they say, is history.
