Bright Okpocha (born 14 September 1978 in Lagos), better known by his stage name Basketmouth, is a Nigerian comedian and actor. He has organized popular stand-up comedy concerts like Basketmouth Uncensored across the globe. Basketmouth hosted a comedy challenge on instagram, called the #twothingschallenge which sparked an uproar from fans, after a young fan posted a video of him saying obscene things relating to sex, with a child in close view.

Basketmouth completed his primary and secondary school education in Apapa, Lagos State and then moved on to pursue a degree at the University of Benin where he studied sociology and anthropology with his brother Godwin.

In 2005 and 2006 Basketmouth won the National Comedy Award and the awards for Best Stand-up Comedian of the Year.
