Kenyan comedy fans are in for a treat after the Nation Media Group announced the grand return of Churchill Show, two years after moving from NTV.

Led by comedy ‘godfather’ Daniel Ndambuki aka Churchill, the laugh fest moved to Cape Media’s TV47 where it ran for a little over a year and went off air, leaving fans disappointed with calls for its return making rounds on social media.

The show is now back in its original home, and the news was shared on the media house’s social media platforms much to the excitement of fans who had been asking for its return for a long time.

“The wait is over, Kenya! The popular #ChurchillShow is coming back after many years of requests from you, the fans! We heard you loud and clear, and we are bringing you the split sides and hilarious skits you love. Get ready for a new season of pure entertainment! Stay TUNED,” the post read.

Churchill was accompanied by former Churchill Raw host McJessy during the announcement at the Nation Center on Monday, June 24, where he stated that the show would be back in July.

“We are excited to be back to where it all began many many years ago, ni watu wameitisha kipindi kirejee and though we are going through a very interesting season as a country, there is a need to release that stress. There may not be much to celebrate, but kuna furaha the show brings kule nyumbani,” Churchill stated after the announcement.

The show first aired on NTV in 2007 and was running until May 2022, when it went off air following the adverse effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the stand-up comedy industry. Comedians who depended on their in-person performances were rendered jobless after social interactions were halted.

Churchill Show is credited with the discovery, nurturing and launch of some of the biggest names in the comedy industry including Erick Omondi, Eddie Butita, Professor Hamo, and YY among others, who were all under the mentorship of Ndambuki.

The announcement comes as the comedy fraternity is still in mourning of the late Fred Omondi who also debuted on the show. He will be laid to rest on Saturday, June 29.
