In her Maisha Magic East debut, The Ultimate Comic will attempt to reach across the aisle and, hopefully, generate laughs in the process…
This past election and political discourse has established something of a stranglehold over the notion of patriotism, especially in relation to tribalism. Churchill’s long-awaited comedy talent search show is finally making its TV debut following the end of a series of countrywide auditions. The new talent search show started off with auditions in Nairobi, Mombasa, Nakuru and Kisumu where more than 600 aspiring comedians went before the judges.
The past weeks have seen close to 300 hopeful contestants present themselves to the judges to prove that they have what it takes to be the ultimate comic. Following the auditions, 36 successful comedians from across the country who will be shortlisted will then proceed to the knock out stages and live shows before the grand finale scheduled for March 2018. The Ultimate Comic winner will walk away with a TV contract, one million shillings and a car.
The show will air over the next 24 weeks exclusively on Maisha Magic East (DStv 158 and GOtv 4). The final episode will reveal the next big name in Kenyan comedy as the winner will be crowned with the title ‘The Ultimate Comic.’ From the auditions, 36 comedians will be shortlisted for the knock out stages and live shows before the grand finale scheduled for 24th March 2018. The new comedy reality will now be airing every Saturday from 8.30pm exclusively on Maisha Magic East.
