Kenya Kona Comedy Night now Crazy Monday Comedy Night
Last night,I attended Crazy Monday Comedy Night for the first time. The event was held at the Hilton’s Tsavo Ballroom in Nairobi and goes down every first Monday of the month. For Ksh.500, comedy lovers are given about three hours of rib-cracking entertainment.
It was also the first time I was seeing female comedians do their thing. And boy! Were some of them funny! The MCs were multi-talented Fred Omondi and Mdomo Baggy. Some of the acts were Othuol Othuol, Jalang’o, Kennet B, Mshamba, a chakacha dancer, poets among others. A number of people felt that the ‘Nyeri women’ and Westlands Vs. Eastlands jokes were too much/too many though.
Standard Group has come in as sponsors hence ‘Crazy Monday’-the Monday Standard Newspaper pull-out. The event has been running since last year and I must say the turn-out did truly impress me.>>these guys already have a good following.
Fred Omondi did get a standing ovation for his new track ‘Gold digger’. I loved it; its funny and danceable. can’t wait to see the video.
The point of this lil’ blog post is; the next time you are free on the first Monday of the month, between 6.30 p.m and 10 p.m,and feel like some comedy, try this one…….expose yourself to such raw talent live.
