COVID-19 EFFECTS: Comedy Store Goes Online. Set to Hold First-Ever Online Show this Friday

Published

on


After suspending its shows in March this year due to the COVID pandemic, Comedy Store Uganda is resuming its weekly shows but this time the comedy-entertainment show will be hosted virtually.

The show hosted by Alex Muhangi has partnered with Fezah, the digital airplay monitoring, and artist booking platform, to debut their online shows in a bid to cope with the ‘new normal’ which has restricted mass gatherings.

Comedy Store’s ‘scientific’ edition will be held Friday, August 28 starting at 8 pm. Organizers promise the same blended entertainment experience but at an affordable price and with more convenience.

When the government banned entertainment events in March so as to slow the spread of the virus, this meant that event organizers had to find innovative ways to stage shows. Muhangi says the partnership with Fezah aims to achieve exactly that.

While musicians have continued to make TV appearances and online performances, the comedy industry has had no activity. This is because stand-up comedy has always thrived on a live audience. But with the uncertainty surrounding how long the ban on shows could last, Muhangi says it’s time to go digital.

“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,” Muhangi said.

Tickets cost Shs 10,000. To buy a ticket, revelers will have to log on to live.fezah.com. On the website, they will scroll through the listed events and select ‘The Alex Muhangi Show: Comedy Store Uganda – Scientific’. Then they’ll click ‘Buy a Ticket’ either using Mobile Money or a Visa card. For queries, call 0772977979.

Once you have paid, you will receive an email with your code and details on how to access the show.

“We think 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 said.

Fezah has previously held online shows for Afrigo Band, Isaac Ruci, Michael Kitanda, and Keneth Mugabi. They are as well hosting Iryn Namubiru’s concert and Blankets and Wine.

Top Police authorities are slated to meet the Katikkiro of Buganda Charles Peter Mayiga this morning to tackle the security raid on a thanksgiving function organized by the Mbogo clan head, and religious leaders at Mugulu in Mityana town over last weekend.

Mobogo Clan head, Kayiira Gajuule had invited Bishop Emeritus John Baptist Kaggwa the retired Bishop of Masaka Diocese to grace the thanksgiving ceremony when anti-riot police stormed the area and sprayed teargas to disperse everyone.

This incident has since drawn widespread criticism from both Buganda kingdom loyalists who have since marched to Bulange Mengo demanding an apology from the Police besides the public condemning police actions

Just yesterday afternoon,. Police were forced to use teargas and live bullets to disperse a group of Buganda loyalists at Mityana municipality protesting the incident and demanding that District Police Commander, Alex Mwine Mukono unconditionally releases all the motorcycles he confiscated during the raid.

This compelled the police boss IGP Martin Okoth Ochola to apologize to the bishop and the Catholic Church.

The police political commissar led by a team of senior officers announced that they would be visiting Bishop Kaggwa at his home to announce their apology to his family and the church on behalf of IGP Ochola .

On Monday, the police spokesperson Fred Enanga apologized to the Catholic Church defending the police action on preventing the spread of COVID19.

He said the firing of teargas was caused by a group of uninvited politicians including Francis Zaake among others who had attracted youth.

Now according to the Buganda kingdom spokesperson Noah Kiyimba, a meeting between the Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga and the top police leadership is scheduled for 11:00 am at Bulange Mengo.
