Adapting to Covid 19: Alex Muhangi to host online comedy 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 8pm. Organizers promise the same blended entertainment experience but at an affordable price and with more convenience.

When 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 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 said.

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

Songstress Sheebah Karungi yesterday, Tuesday May 17, 2022 recorded a statement at the Uganda Police’s Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID) on her reported sexual assault saga.

The “Nwakata Burungi” singer who has been mute ever since she broke the news on her sexual harassment by one of her clients she claimed to be a ‘role-model’ in Uganda, showed up before Tom Magambo, the Director of Uganda Police’s Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID).

According to close sources, Sheebah filed a case of ‘Indecent assault’ against the yet undisclosed person.

The self-proclaimed ‘Swag Mama’ made it clear that the person in question wasn’t journalist Andrew Mwenda.

Sheebah confirmed that instead saboteurs had been falsely passing wrong information to the public pointing to Andrew Mwenda and other government officials.

Sheebah’s thought to seek Police sparked last week by Andrew Mwenda who was being trolled on social media.

The Commander for Land Forces in the UPDF, Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba, who is also Andrew Mwenda’s close friend assured maximum security to Sheebah in case she feared for her life as she advances seeking justice in this matter.

Sheebah’s bold move has highly been commended gender activists several women both in Uganda and around the world.
