It was a night of laughter at the inaugural edition of the Laugh Festival Africa held on Friday at the Carnivore Grounds.
The event hosted some of the continent’s best comedians including Kenya’s own Churchill, MC Jessy, Professor Hamo and Sleepy David, Patrick Salvado from Uganda, Arthur Nkusi (Rwanda), Carl Ncube (Zimbabwe), Eddie Kadi (DRC), Ndumsio Lindi (South Africa) and Malawi’s Daliso Chaponda.
The event witnessed a full-house attendance as fun lovers thronged the venue in thousands for a dose of laughter from the comedy giants.

Salvado, Jessy, Chaponda and Sleepy were by far the crowd favourites.
Congolese music star Fally Ipupa also made a cameo.
The Sexy Dance hit maker is in the country for the recording of TV music show Coke Studio Africa Season Four.
According to the event organisers, Laugh Industry, there has been a need to venture beyond Kenya for a new experience to provide quality entertainment and bring African comedians on one platform.
They argue that the new venture is also set to challenge local talent to compete with top African counterparts.
