It was a red carpet affair that saw revellers arrive as early as 7 PM. They were welcomed by live Dj mixes until a few minutes to 8 PM when Saxophonist Happy Kyazze took the stage to warm them up with a mind blowing jazz session.
Kenneth Mugabi who was the next performer didn’t disappoint as he excited the crowd performing his tunes like ‘Nkwegomba’, ‘Kibunoomu’, ‘Naaki’ among others
At a quarter past 9 PM, the ‘Just Comedy’ show host Salvado stepped on stage to officially welcome the crowd which filled up the venue. He didn’t hide his excitement over the big number of revellers whom he thanked for sparing their time to come through.
Being a host, it didn’t stop him from cracking jokes that got the fans laughing out loud all through.
The later opened the stage for the headlining comedians. Kenyan comedian Eric Omondi who was the main headliner closed show on a high note with his rib cracking jokes. One of his catchy jokes was about the difference in stage performances between Ugandan artistes and Tanzanian artistes
He joked that Tanzanian artistes are simple, relaxed and soft while performing but Ugandan artistes on the contrary are the opposite because they jump and down on top of shouting and engaging the crowd. He accompanied his jokes which got the crowd dying with laughter.
The show was lit up by other comedians like Emma Napoleone and Ronnie McVex who are the show’s co-hosts and Uncle Mark, Agnes Akite, 2Mbili from Kenya (surprise performer), Smart Ayokyayokya and Omukebete
The show was generally an interesting and successful one only that the only way to make to the venue which is at Kingdom Kampala’s 10th floor, was by use of lifts which brought some congestion to and from.
