Uganda’s local comedy duo Mad Rat (Dickson Lubega) and Chiko (Frank Mubiru) have once again launched what they call the ‘Third Edition of Nseko Buseko show’ to be dominated by only new jokes.
“We want to force tears of joy out of your jaws and if you become sick, we shall use jokes to treat you” Mad rat said during the launch of the show at Exo lounge in Kampala.
Another surprise of this year’s Edition according to the comedians, will be officially introducing their wife(ves) and child(ren) to the public. “Not only that we shall also introduce our parents and siblings so that you know that we are not alone in the world” Chiko added.
The duo added that this time they have decided to organize a show at Uganda Manufacturers’ Association multi-purpose hall Lugogo so that they can make every category of their supporters to feel free while at the show.
“When we held our concert at Imperial Royale, some people felt left out, they could not afford expensive drinks of such a hotel deemed to be a high class hotel, others felt like the venue was too small for them to come with their families” Madrat explained.
Chiko added that this time, they have decided to choose an all-inclusive venue.
We can never be vulgar and obscene
During the press conference, a concerned supporter asked if he would be assured that he didn’t have to worry coming along with his children, Chiko told him “We have never been, we shall never be and we don’t have any plans of being close to being vulgar”.
Sponsored by MTN and Mirinda among others, this year’s show is slated for August 2, which will be followed by other nationwide shows and the host is comedy store’s Alex Muhangi.
