Comedy is another rapidly evolving field in entertainment. In the last two week of July, Kampala alone has had upto 5 live comedy shows and all had an audience full to the brim. Nseko Buseko, Silent Comedy, Rock Wednesday, Just Comedy and Comedy Store all had venues full in the last two weeks.

A keen comedy lover and observant must have already learnt that comedy in Kampala has it’s warmest reception ever in Uganda but we go back to the genesis of this massive treck.

Long before comedy got serious in Kampala, Alex Muhangi started Comedy Store, a weekly comedy show that many thought was a crazy idea to invite people to comedy every week. Comedy Store has over the years stood, proved and given comedians the confidence that they are loved.

All other comedy shows that come after get the courage and inspiration from the existance of Comedy Store.

Do you think Comedy is taking over Music in Uganda?

Chaka Demus & Pliers

By Our Reporter

Jamaican reggae duo, Chaka Demus & Pliers are not coming to Uganda, we can confirm. Popular for songs like “Tease Me” and “Murder She Wrote” among others, the Jamaican stars had been rumored to be the headliners for a Valentine’s Day show to be held at Kololo Independence Grounds. As it turns out, it is just that, a rumour.

Salavdo who is hosting the Africa Laughs show at the Kololo Independence Grounds on Valentine’s Day debunked the rumours while speaking to media on Tuesday.

“Chaka Demus & Pliers coming to my show were simply that — rumours,”  Salvado said. “This is why you have not see any artwork or official communication from us about them.”

Salvado, whose Africa Laughs show is returning for the 5th edition, further revealed that the show will instead feature Tanzanian bongo star Harmonize.

“Harmonize is going to bring the Valentines feeling to the show,” he noted.

The Africa Laughs show will also be graced by top comedians from across the continent like Nigeria’s Kenny Blaq, Kenya’s Eric Omondi, Congo’s Eddie Kadi and Zimbabwe’s Alfred Kainga. They will crack up comedy lovers alongside Uganda’s very own like Daniel Omara, Prince Emma, Ronnie Mc Vex, Agnes Akite and Madrat & Chiko among others.

The show is slated for 14th February this year.
