Agnes Akite is a well-known comedian in Uganda with big aspirations to venture out beyond Uganda as well. We speak about her unusual introduction to the entertainment industry, how she went viral after performing at the Comedy Store, Ugandan and she stays grounded in such a vibrant career.
As many of you will know I am off to Uganda this week with my partner to visit her family, whilst I am there I will be recording some special, exclusive episodes with some of Uganda’s top comedians. I can’t reveal any more information just yet but I am really excited to have the opportunity to speak all things comedy with pros from a different frame of reference.
Two more episodes have been scheduled to release whilst I am in Uganda, details to follow.
Nathan Gibbons is new to stand-up comedy but has worked really hard to get his craft good enough to take a show to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, I really admire his determination and ambition which I’m sure will pay off.
Martin Westgate is an absolute rising star in the comedy world, with his quick wit and likeable character he is quickly getting a following. We speak about him flopping on Britain’s Got Talent but how that has played in integral role in shaping his brilliant show, Simples.
This week I am having a conversation with Martin Westgate who is rapidly making a name for himself and has just taking his new show ‘Simples’ to the stage. Martin is an expert at quick one liners, cheeky gags and interacting with audiences – with his wit, charm and relaxed approach; there is no heckle too far.
Until then I have recorded amazing conversations with other wonderful comedians, take a listen – links below.
