Ugandan comedy lovers were felt a heavy low after the much coveted comedy night dubbed Comedy Store was sent into an unprecedented hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The comedy show championed by comedian Alex Muhangi had for the past six months resisted the temptation of going online.
However, with the continuation of a surge in number of COVID-19 cases in Uganda, there is little hope that events will be allowed to reopen normally. For that matter, Alex Muhangi has decided to go online and scientific as he announced that he is set to hold an online Comedy Store experience.
The show will take place this Friday online with association with Fezah, the digital airplay monitoring platform. The show starts at 8pm and comedy lovers can grace themselves for a blast.
“Comedy Store fans have been requesting us to think of alternatives through which they can continue to enjoy comedy. They miss the experience. So, with Fezah, we are offering a solution. We think the online shows will be convenient for our fans. You can watch from wherever, including the Diaspora. And it’s cheap. Ordinarily, our tickets go for 20k, but the online shows will cost 10k. That way, you can spare some money for internet data. But it will be the same great entertainment package,” Muhangi wrote on social media.
