The UG Pineapple Comedy tour came to an end on Friday with a show stopping comedy experience at Laftaz lounge, Centenary Park in Kampala. By 8pm, Laftaz was filled with revellers ready to catch some rib cracking jokes from a host of comedians including Teacher Mpamire, Dolibondo, Optional Allan, Madrat and Chico and Amooti Omubalanguzi among others.

At the entrance to the comedy show, free cocktails and shots of the Pineapple flavour were handed out to the enthusiastic revelers who waited for Uganda’s biggest comedians. The UG Pineapple lounge was a good place to stop and have a sunshine pineapple experience with the new UG flavour.

Comedy is only an addition to this Uganda’s biggest export and helps to bring fans together. Comedy at Laftaz’s gave the comedians a chance to showcase their improved talent. While new kids like Optional Allan are coming into the industry with promising talent, older comedians like Napoleon Emma who were flat in the yesteryears are now an improvement and their delivery of jokes is superb.

Dolibondo has never found it hard to make people laugh and he did not disappoint. Amooti on the other hand is still as funny as ever. He has incorporated music into his set and this has only spiced up and improved his stage performance. Madrat and Chico are also steadily researching and learning how to turn normal everyday life into a pack of jokes.

The show was crowned with a performance from the biggest male musician on the scene today, King Saha who perfornced his best hits, Biri Biri and Very well, among others.

Here are some photos from the event.

For months now, club goers around Kampala have been experiencing a new wave of fun when they hit their favourite hangout spots thanks to the ongoing Tusker Malt quiz nights that have taken center stage in most city hangouts.

The quiz nights have been going on in bars such Bay Lounge, Lugogo Bypass, The Gardens in Najjera, Peacock (Luganda) on Tuesday’s, Valhalla on Lumumba Avenue, Moto Moto Gaba on Wednesdays, Trends Lounge Bugolobi and Arena 1 sports bar in Kisementi on Thursdays, Dons Club Kampala Road and the Cloud Lounge Capital Shoppers Ntinda on Friday and last but not least Monalisa Club in Kabusu doing the Luganda every Sunday.

Friday night was not any different as revelers at Club Dons and Cloud were treated to a fun night full of tricky questions, music and a lot of cold beers as they danced the night away welcoming in the weekend.

Luganda quiz that’s dubbed “MBUULIRA NE TUSKER MALT LAGER” which happens every Friday at Dons left revelers in awe as most struggled to answer the fun tricky questions with the rest cheering.

“Quiz nights is a way for people to unwind from the day’s hard work and just have a good time. What better way to do it than with a fun quiz, company of good friends and a cold Tusker Malt beer,” Estella Muzito head of beer at Uganda Breweries Limited.

Revelers get the chance to answer fun trick questions in teams of four to five people in a total of four rounds with each round marked by the quiz master. At the end of the four rounds, the winning team gets to walk away with goodies from Tusker Malt.
