Queens of Comedy is an all female stand up comedy platform. It started in 2013 after observation that the number of ladies doing standup comedy in Uganda was extremely limited. The first shows featured Leilah Kalanzi, Anne Kansiime, Tindichebwa Mustafa (Tindi) and Cotilda Inapo as the only ladies that were willing to face up to standup comedy at that time. However with the mission of Queens of Comedy being to discover and mentor the greatest female comedy talent the world has to offer; to the original ladies many more have been added. These include Nancy Kobusheshe, Eva Nabadda, Lyshia Juliet Abwooli, Agnes Akite, Maggie Nansubuga and Dorah Nakagga to mention but a few. The ladies have featured on various platforms besides their own with special recognition for Comedy Files Live and Comedy Club Live in Kampala. They hold their shows once a month on the first Wednesday of the month at Theatre La Bonita and you can always catch them there. The Queens of Comedy will be performing #BAYIMBA2015 on Saturday 19th Sept. at 7pm (19hrs) in the Auditorium.
