It is the funniest bunch we have in the country and it is coming live to our TV screens through the continental channel M-Net starting Monday – we’re talking about Comedy Club: Live in Kampala.
The much-anticipated stand-up feat will present a host of Ugandan comedians alongside a few from Britain, Kenya, Zambia, Rwanda and Tanzania.
The 13-episode series, hosted by Gaetano Kaggwa, will feature the likes of Uganda’s Daniel Omara, Bright Amanya, Cotilda, St. Freak, Anne Kansiime, Tindi, Conan Tumusiime, Sam Okello, Patrick Idringi, Alex Muhangi, Mendo Herbert Segujja, Emmanuel Sebakijje, Prince Emmah and Pablo Kimuli. Outsiders like Britain’s Kevin J plus Kenyans JB, John Kibet, Sande Bush, Othol Othuol and Maurice Ochieng will also feature alongside Bob Nkosha from Zambia, Herve Kimenyi from Rwanda and Tanzania’s Evans Bukuku.
The show premieres on January 2 at 9p.m. Meanwhile, Idringi will also feature on the Nigerian version called Comedy Club: Live in Lagos. The Nigerian series, hosted by Big Brother presenter IK, features some of the hottest comedians in Africa, with its line-up including performers from Nigeria, Ghana and Sierra Leone.
