As Ultimate Comic picks up speed, we are in the lakeside city of Kisumu and our articulate cousins are, indeed, a refreshing surprise! Episode two was electric, fast-paced and extremely entertaining.
Our talent scouts had a field day interviewing and preparing the contestants during this audition stage, with lots of rib-cracking highlights from the co-hosts, mentors and judges! On the judging panel this week was Felix Odiwuor otherwise known as ‘Jalang’o’, the beautiful Massawe Japanni and our seasoned talent coach, Victor Ber.
This power trio brought the right amount of professionalism and set the pace in the serious business of stand-up comedy. Show host, Daniel Ndambuki (Churchill) ensured the contestants had a strong support system throughout the process. This was evidenced by the ever-thoughtful prayer session led by co-host and Comedy great, Njugush (Timothy Kimani) which was truly one of the numerous highlights on this episode.
Kisumu gave Ultimate Comic a unique gift. We saw the ladies step to the plate as strong contenders for the coveted KES 1 Million! In an industry where few women break the glass ceiling’ they delivered quality comedic content and gave the men a run for their money!
We cannot wait for the next episode of Ultimate Comic as we step into the Live Shows! Keep watching and find exclusives, behind the scenes footage, galleries and more information on maishamagiceast.tv/ultimatecomicke.
