Comedians Madrat, Chiko and Ehmah Napoleon were at their best over the weekend, sending everyone into laughter during the Singleton Golf Challenge which continues to establish itself as Uganda’s ultimate amateur golf competition.

The competition saw 16 pairs (32 golfers) proceed to Round Three of the acclaimed golfing challenge after which the duo took to the stage and sent into laughter with their well-coordinated jokes. Their skits were so funny that even Patrick ‘Salvado’ Idringi was seen dying of laughter as well which is a rare case for comedians to laugh at other comedians jokes.

The trio threw different jokes, directing some to the members of the audience, fellow comedians and more about the society.

Being more of a golf event, the singleton challenge also went off as designers harbour as the golfers celebrated their wins and sucked up their losses with denim and cowboy boots, adhering to the Texas-themed 19th whole experience at the Par 71 lakeside Entebbe Golf Club course.
