Pablo bringing top South African comedian Tshepo Mogale this month

Comedy is arguably the biggest form of art connecting Uganda to the rest of the continent at the moment. Last weekend, we had Africa’s top ranked comedian Basket Mouth performing alongside Zimbabwe’s Carl Joshua, Eric Omondi from Kenya, as well as our top shots Salvado, Ann Kansiime, Alex Muhangi and Mondo M7 from Uganda. The show dubbed Africa Laughs that was held at Imperial Royale hotel in Kampala was a sellout.

A few days before Basket Mouth, another leading  comedian on the continent, Klint the Drunk was in town for the monthly Pablo and the Continental Comedian show that takes place at The Hub at Oasis Mall.

And comedian Pablo is not about to back down on introducing Uganda to the continent’s biggest comedy acts. From Zambia’s Kibwe Katebe, to Uzonitsha Mandy, Nigeria’s first female comedian and Klint the Drunk, Pablo is set to fly in Tshepo Mogale, a top South African comedian.

Mogale will share the stage with Ugandan comedians including Pablo, the host, Bob Nuwagira aka Uncle Bob, Simiyu from Kenya as well as Dr Kiziito Makanga, who is back after taking off some time to first complete medical school.

The show will also be characterised by a music performance by the Cape Brothers and Band Bracha! The Nation Media Group-sponsored event is slated for August 30, at the Hub.
