The weekly ‘Comedy Store’ show that happens at UMA Show Grounds didn’t happen happen on Thursday. Reason being that the host Alex Muhangi is in the US where he had gone to watch Trevoh Noah as he presents the Daily Show.
Comedy Store has been a success ever since Muhangi moved it to Lugogo with every episode attracting more and more people but when he received an invite for the Daily Show, he couldn’t think twice.
“Last night your boy Alex Muhangi chanced to grace The Daily Show. You gotta love this suit. He looks exquisite. Rate this attire out of 10. Meanwhile just a reminder –#COMEDYSTOREUG WILL NOT HAPPEN TONIGHT AS EARLIER COMMUNICATED. WE’RE ON A BREAK.” Reads a post from the comedy store page.
Alex Muhangi’s invite was a VIP courtesy of Opio who is one of the crew members of the show and also a Ugandan.
“Alex Muhangi/Crew (JOpio) Staff VIP Guest-5pm check in. The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Thank you for your interest in our show. This letter confirms your VIP tickets (s). We ask that all VIP holders and their guests arrive to check in by 5pm. Arriving late may release your seats and no longer guarantee your entry,” the invite reads.
On reaching the show, Muhamgi posted. “A Backstage Chillout at @thedailyshow. Moments before kickoff.”
