Comedy Store Ug, a weekly comedy show hosted by comedian Alex Muhangi, is being relocated again.
The weekly comedy show which was shifted from Diners Lounge to neighboring The 400 in Bukoto in October last year is now being relocated to UMA Exhibition Hall in Lugogo.
According to a statement released by management, they are relocating again over constant clashes with the authorities at their current venue. The statement read:
“The circumstances that prompted us to move the show were unprecedented and beyond our making. Central to these circumstances were the continued disruptions by city authorities over what they called noise pollution to residents in the neighborhood.
“They further said that the show was contravening with the mandatory timelines for night events. It’s upon this background that as Management of Comedy Store, we came to the realization that it was no longer possible to hold shows at the 400 without interruptions. Both parties (Comedy Store and 400) agreed that it was in their own best interests to deal with this challenge.
“Therefore, we hereby announce that we shall henceforth host our weekly shows at the UMA Exhibition Hall in Lugogo, which is an indoor venue and thus won’t go against the KCCA regulations that guide entertainment events.”
Comedy Store Ug will make a debut at their new home on Thursday, 25 January, 2018.
