Wherever they have gone, they have not left a single rib “uncracked”, nor left the old not belting out in glee. On 12th December 2015 Snake and Zoro, Mad Rat and Chiko, Arthur De Vaccine, Dolibondo and Dickhanio will be performing in Fort Portal on the last leg of the Mirinda Comedy Tour.

The show will take place at Garden Restaurant and will also be headlined by Lydia Jazmine, one of the biggest musicians, whose songs have received considerable rotational airplay.
Mr Innocent Tibayeita, the head of Sales and Marketing at Crown Beverages Limited, says: “As we have a proven track record of supporting talent and keeping our consumers entertained after a hard day’s work, our last upcountry show in #FortPortal this Saturday will help cement Mirinda’s connection with consumers and also provide a platform for the brand to live true to its promise; Free your fun side.” Mirinda has been a strong partner to Ugandan comedy over the years, thus the introduction of an only-comedy platform last year.
Initially, the platform was for comedians in Kampala and Jinja but since then, a host of shows have taken place in other towns and more than 50 comedians have been identified in those areas.
Fans enjoying comedy
This year, comedians have been able to showcase their talent while creating an exciting experience for the people of Mbale, Jinja, Masaka, Mbarara, Hoima, Lira, Arua, among other major towns in Uganda. “We expanded the partnership so as to bring leading comedians allover Uganda on board, tap into Ugandans’ love for music and take this fantastic experience to the rest of the country.”
The Mirinda Comedy, Mr Timothy Luzinda, the brand manager, says embodies the true character of brand Mirinda, which comes in a variety of flavors including; Fruity, Orange, Pineapple and Green Apple. The show will start at 6pm.
