5 Things We Hate About Ugandan Comedians



By Joram Kawira

UG Comedy, What goes wrong??

Truth be told Uganda takes the lead if We are to look at talent displayed in comedy in both East and Central Africa (I don’t know much about South). We could even do better and scrap the Nigerians off their tittle but there are things that UG comedians need to let go first.

1. Repetition of Jokes.
Every Comedian has his/her trade mark joke. But when it’s the only joke you present every time you step on stage then it loses meaning. By the time you take on comedy asyour profession then creativity becomes a must.

“The #SamsungTwitterParty is back! Get ready to party the night away come 19th December at Zone 7 with fellow tweeps. Entrance is 15,000shs. Call 0775439894 for details. Great music and drinks.” 

2. Tribal attacks
Jokes that attack tribes are the most hilarious but when they are over done they stop being funny.. The Basoga-Chapati/­Emputu joke has stopped being funny. The Bakiga-arrogancy joke phased out even Daudi Chwa had stopped laughing at it… If it’s a tribal joke we need something fresh

3. Vulgar Presentations
Comedy shows usually run at night so I expect above 18s only to attend them, but still that doesn’t guarantee comedians to turn shows into Biology classes… Being nasty and vulgar will only work for you if you are targeting to become a star amongst the Bwaise masses but on the International level?? Sorry bro!

4.Too much love for Money
Most Comedians are doing the wrong profession. We understand you have bills to pay too. But running a million shows in one week so that you can bag huge sum means you will be left with no time to prepare yourself. That’s why you end up repeating the same jokes and leaving out the creativity part of it.

5. Googled Internet jokes
It’s embarrassing when a Comedian steps on stage and presents an Akpors joke that you probably read on internet 5years ago. I would rather a Comedian to repeat His own joke over and over again. You will faint one day when the audience yells Google, Google at you.
