Churchill Show has been responsible for so many comedic talents rising through the ashes and becoming household names for many Kenyans.
Some of those famous sons and daughters are like Eric Omondi and Teacher Wanjiku.
And it hasn’t stopped there. The show has revealed a brand-new talent. Who is that? Fast-rising comedienne Lucy Mwende Kariuki, popularly known by her stage name, ‘Kayellow Yellow’.
Her life story before fame is so fascinating. Her comedy outfit released a video that explained that she had been employed as a housemaid in Saudi Arabia for about three years. She said;
While I was in Saudi Arabia, I used to do short clips. I did not know that mimi naweza kuchekesha watu kama nimeshika Mic. So mimi nilia nafanya short clips na Kasimu kangu, naweka kwa mtandao, watu wanafurahia.
She went on to reveal that her then fans on Facebook kept on requesting Daniel Ndambuki aka Churchill to recruit her in his comedy platform. She added;
I did not believe in myself but when I came back home, kwa bahati mzuri nikakuta kuna hii mashindano ya Ultimate Comic. Nilipita na ni kafurahia sana.
Mwende pointed out that there are days she feels like quitting, even trying set books, saying;
Kuna mahali kwa comedy nilikua nimefika nikasikia nikama naweza acha, mpaka nikaanza kujiuliza ama I’m not funny. Coz nikianza kuna auditions nilikua nimeenda. Hadi nikachoka. Nakumbuka kuna siku nilikua naenda auditions za set books. Kuna yenye nilichukuliwa then nikasomeshwa kitabu nikashika yote but wakati wa kuchaguliwa, niikambiwa kulikuwa na watu wengi so wewe, utafanya ya next time.
That did not stop her and Mwende says she has big dreams and with God, all is possible. We all hope that she can become the next big thing in comedy.
