Fun Factory on Thursday wound up their annual end of year performance with an undoubtably awesome show at Serena Hotel’s Victoria Conference Hall.

The ‘5 Star Madness’ was well attended by top city comedy enthusiasts and comedians who thronged the venue at 6 PM to enjoy the show hosted by Uganda’s sketch comedy group Fun Factory.

The event powered by Bell Lager saw revelers jam packing the foyer at the Hotel by 6 PM enjoying free Bell Lager and Uganda Waragi cocktails. At 8:30 PM, they were ushered in to the hall serenaded by jazz melodies from Joseph Sax and band and by 9 PM when the show had gone just a skit deep, the hall had about 800 comedy fans ready to be thrilled.

The group did not disappoint the watchful eyes and attentive ears of the revelers as they put up a number of their best rib-tickling skits over the year around common life situations, leaving the audience cracking from the word go.

Fan favorites such as Uganda’s award winning comedian Anne Kansiime, Richard Tuwangye, Herbert Segujja aka Teacher Mpamire, Veronica Tindi, Hannington Bujjingo are some of the comedians who headlined the affair.

When asked about the show, the fans were full of praise. Even one of the cutest couples in the business Bebe Cool and wife Zuena were won over by Fun Factory.
