Agnes Akite is slowly becoming a force to reckon with in the comedy circles after organising a successful second edition of the Arise Woman comedy jam show last Friday. The show is strategically timed to rhyme with celebrations to mark Women’s Day and thus males only feature on stage as extras.

With a lineup of comedians that included Titin Gladys, Anne Kansiime, and Richmouth, the crowd that turned up in fair numbers was left in stitches as they celebrated and glorified women in their funny ways. The crowd’s favourite segment was by Titin Gladys who progressively told stories of the daily woes in her relationship troubles.

A joke from the Fun Factory ladies received a standing ovation. It was about a pregnant Mutoro woman who was so worn out close to her due date and while she was still whining, an Acholi woman carrying a basket of maize on her head came to the hospital, asked where the delivery room was, headed in and a few minutes later returned carrying her baby.

She called her husband to inform him that she was headed back to the streets to vend her merchandise.
“Tonight has been exceptional! It has been a truly amazing show and I’m pleased to know that you will all leave this place remembering the night’s fun moments. I am humbled and forever grateful,” Akite said.
