For about 3 years now, Alex Muhangi’s Comedy Store has been the flagship of the Ugandan stand-up comedy industry.
However, last week comedian Patrick Idringi alias Salvador started his own weekly comedy night dubbed Just Comedy that happens every Wednesday at Kingdom Kampala.
And rumours have been circulating that the two comedians are beefing. It is claimed that Salvador’s move was to the end Muhangi's successful tenure.
Muhangi has come out to dismiss the allegations that the two comedians are feuding. “We are friends. He actually consulted me on what he should do to have a successful show. There is nothing like beef. Everyone of us is working hard to take the Comedy industry a notch higher," Alex Muhangi said during an interview.
Over the years, a number of comedians have tried to start rival comedy nights but they end up closing shop.
There is no longer any room for laziness in the art of comedy. It takes only talented comedians to keep up since its a serious and fast- paced industry.
