He may not be a hit in Uganda when it comes to comedy but Teacher Mpamire is really a big brand according to Nigerian Comedian Basket Mouth.
Basket who is in Uganda ahead of the ‘Comedy Store’ show happening on Thursday the 15th of August named his top comedians world over and in Uganda.
On the list is Dave Chapelle, Eddy Murphy and Russel Peters. In Uganda, he named Salvado, Alex Muhangi and Teacher Mpamire although he really doesn’t know his real name.
“There is this comedian who acts as a teacher. He’s really funny. I like his arrangement of words,” said Basketmouth.
He also advised Alex Muhangi to change the name of the show from ‘Comedy Store’ to ‘Comedy Market’ because it Is much more than just a store.
“This is the first time I am coming for this particular show but when Alex told it’s a comedy store, I thought it was something small but when he told me that the show attracts over 8,000 people, I told him to think of renaming it comedy market.”
The Nigerian comedian was in Uganda last year during the ‘Africa Laughs’ show but said he will always come back to Uganda anytime because it is his second home.
In a related development, comedy store has reduced the general price from Ug Shs 50,000 to 40,000 to enable more people get a catch the show.
