Why Eric Omondi is The Best Comedian in Kenya
After staging a very successful show in Nairobi back in May, organizers of Africa’s biggest comedy show, A Nite of a Thousand Laughs, will be taking the show to Naira-land. Among the comedians to perform during the event will be Kenya’s rib-tickling Eric Omondi.
The petite stand-up comedian will be the only Kenyan during the event and he didn’t hide his displeasure. “I am so disappointed that out of all the artistes who will be performing in Nigeria, I will be the only Kenyan,” Erick told the Standard.
Eric Omondi argued that Kenya tops in Africa when it comes to new talent comedians and urged other Kenyan actors to strive to represent the country at continental platforms not just within the borders.
Slated for tonight at the Muson Center, the show will feature some of Africa’s best humorists like Uganda’s Patrick ‘Salvador’ Idringi. Top Nigerian musicians like Iyanya, Brymo and Omawumi are also expected to grace the show.
