Ugandan comedian Patrick Idring Salvador has launched a weekly comedy show dubbed ‘Just Comedy UG’ that is set to be held every Wednesday.
The man from Ombokoloh together with his co-hosts Emma Napoleone and Ronnie McVex addressed the media as they officially launched the Just Comedy show at Atmosphere Lounge on Tuesday 30 July.
Salvador revealed that the show will be a weekly event and made it clear that he has not started it to fight anyone or outcompete the already existing comedy shows as he planned this for a long time.
According to Salvador, the show will be entirely comedy and artistes who want to perform will ask to perform as he will not be hiring any. “Just like the name suggests, I will not be hiring any musicians to sing at the show, if a musician wants to perform, she/he can ask” he said.
He also emphasized that the show will be clean comedy with no vulgarity as it will be a family friendly show where you can sit with your relatives and all enjoy the show. It is one way he is trying to curb down vulgarity in the comedy industry.
The show will debut this Wednesday 31st July 2019 at the Kingdom Kampala Mall.
Top East African comedian Eric Omondi will grace the launch alongside Napoleone Ehma, Ronnie McVex, Uncle Mark, Omukebete, Akite Agnes, Smart Ayokyayokya and the host Patrick Idringi Salvado.
The fee is 20k, 50K and 500K for ordinary, VIP and a table respectively.
