There has been a huge debate over the past few years , concerning the stand up comedians in Kenya who make it to Churchill Show and later on go back to poverty.
Being the top show in the country, Churchill show attracts the top talent and thus means, anyone who goes through this show must eject herself or himself from poverty.
But no, some of the Kenyan comedians as we learn, have gone through it and went back to languish in poverty.
Here is a list of Kenyan stand up comedians who went from grass to grace and unluckily went back to rugs.
Comedian Zeddy Zainabu who opened the lead on financially suffering comedians noted that Sleepy was in dire need of money.
Sleepy is suffering but he can’t say so. He has no job, nothing. He is just surviving– Zeddy said.
According to Zeddy, Wa Kimani also makes it to the list of those who are suffering from abject poverty.
She noted these when she appeared on Comedian Jalas You Tube.
Wa Kimani had even given up and wanted to sell his kidney to survive. I am here to speak!
Njoro was also noted to be in big need of money and moral support.
Zeddy said these allegations without fear and accused Churchill Show management of mistreatment of comedians .
Majority of male comedians are suffering in silence. The men are educated, young but never speak up! Wa Kimani and Njoro are all suffering and they are struggling to make ends meet.
Despite his sudden death in 2020 October, Comedian Othoul Othoul died at a time when he was so low financially.
He struggled to pay his bills, as well as struggling to buy food and pay rent,
