Photos: How the Pineapple Comedy night went down in Fort Portal
By Staff Writer
“Boojo Twongele” was the catch word at the Uganda Waragi Pineapple Comedy night in Fort Portal town, Kabarole district. For every comedian that took to the stage, “give us more” followed their performance when they stepped off the stage. And yet, the next and the next and the next comedian was even better than the last.
Uganda Waragi Pineapple was in Fort Portal town last weekend to introduce the new Pineapple Flavour to the people of Tooro Kingdom. It was a good day to be in the home of Tooro Kingdom which was preparing for the 23rd Coronation Anniversary celebrations of King Oyo Nyimba Kabamba Iguru. Being the eve of the celebrations, the whole town was busy with Kasiki parties. Pilsner Lager decided to take their celebrations to a street jam party. The crowd was so big that half of the road was cut off by jubilant celebrants.
But the ultimate stop as the night wore off was the Uganda Waragi Pineapple Comedy show at Garden Restaurant on Fort Portal Kampala Road. The special line-up of comedians was especially selected for the people of Fort Portal because the jokes hit home. From Jjaja Bruce scripting jokes around the much loved Bukedde TV Agataliiko Nfuufu to MC Mariachi taking on the humble Batooro who are too polite to offend anyone.
The night was also livened up by the presence of Miss Tourism Fort Portal and uganda’s smallest rapper Fefe Busi.
Uganda Waragi Comedy tour will be heading to Gulu and Mbarara.
