By Our Reporter

Uganda’s female comedians joined the rest of the world in celebrating International Women’s day as they staged a mega show dubbed “Arise Woman comedy jam” on Friday evening at Theatre La’bonita.

Hosted by stand-up comedian Agnes Akite and sponsored by Tusker Malt, the show was marked by bouts of laughter as different acts took to the stage to crack jokes on a range of topics mainly evolving about social issues.  Laced in humour, the show was also used to highlight some of  the different issues  that women in Uganda and around the world face in their day to day lives.

The evening’s line up included Titin, Kobusheshe, Leila Kachapizo, Dora, Richmouth, and The Fun Factory ladies who staged skits that had the crowd laughing out loud.

Arise Woman comedy jam

According to Agnes Akite,  “The Arise Woman Comedy Jam” is an annual event aimed at celebrating women through comedy. “We set up this event to celebrate women through comedy.  The Comedy Jam will continue to bring you the best hilarious production annually in celebration of women,” said Agnes Akite.

She further noted that part of the proceeds from the show will go towards supporting women who are running charity initiatives across the country. This year’s proceeds will go to supporting the “Home of Hope” in Jinja, which is equipping disadvantaged children with life skills.

The show ended at 11pm.

Published

By Staff Writer

Over the week, a video of Salvado’s standup performance went viral. It was one of his most creative jokes to-date about different airlines and their themes.

On one of the jokes about Rwanda Air, genocide was mentioned as one of the topics air hostesses can’t miss.

Now Rwandans have picked that up and taken offence. They have given Salvado an ultimatum to apologize. But he is not about to allow.

On his Twitter profile, he says those offended are missing the humour. The Rwandans insist the 1994 Genocide against the tutsi is not something to joke about.
