[Editor's note: This show was originally scheduled for August and was postponed due to travel complications.] With over 1 billion people living among 54 unique countries, Africa represents one of the most diversified populations on the planet. Demonstrating that humor is a universal part of humanity, the African Comedy Show features some of the most prominent comedians to emerge from the continent in recent years. Heading the lineup is Anne Kansiime, a Ugandan standup whose enormous popular appeal has earned her the esteemed moniker Queen of African Comedy. Michael Omuka (aka Smart-Joker) and Dankan Onyango (aka Tumbili or 2mbili), who both gained fans on the popular Kenyan comedy showChurchill Live, are also highlighted. Serving as hosts for the evening will be Cotilda Inapo (Uganda) and Eric Omondi (Kenya).
