TONIGHT and tomorrow night, the once Zambia’s leading sidesplitting team, Zambia One Comedy regroups at the famous Kitwe Little Theatre club for their 10th anniversary celebrations.
Lusaka playhouse was the first venue the well-liked Zambia One Comedy crew regrouped to celebrate its 10th year of existence to a good audience.
The Lusaka response was good and so it is anticipated in Kitwe, especially tonight though many personalities that made part of the first of this unique group are not there not make it 10 years either through natural causes or personal decision.
Now the Kitwe Little theater Club is not only being used as one of the 10th anniversary cerebration venues but has a serious undertone with the Zambia One Comedy as this is actually the place the team was born on the 16th of October, 2004.
Although this is the place of birth on the aforementioned date, the team has decided to shift the main celebrations that fall on the exact date 16th of October back to Lusaka at Mulungushi International Conference Centre.
The group comprising Lee Chanda Nonde (Ba Robby), Mumpangwe Mayuka, Anny Katamanda, Annita Munamonga, Derreck Chalo Kondowe aka Dangerous Joburg and the fresh mimicking talent in the name of Collins Zulu will make up the cast to entertain the Kitwe residents for three hours each night.
This is in the old favorite and requested for Stand up comedy and 12 Skits; some from the last decade of performances.
The ZAMTEL and ZNBC supported performance which has been pegged at a lower gate fee of K50 and free K5 Zamtel talktime to allow Kitwe residents celebrate the two nights of Zambia One Comedy dedicated to them in grand style.
