Comedy Store gaffer, Alex Muhangi is sweating plasma after losing his UMA venue to other competitors over Revenue!
Muhangi has been making a kill from the weekly Comedy Store gig at UMA venue, but he has now traced the exit to a smaller venue.
According to sources, the development was due to unpaid revenue. This led Alex Muhangi to relocate from UMA to Lazio, which is smaller and less suitable for hosting large comedy events.
This has had a negative impact on the industry, as many comedians are now struggling to find suitable venues to perform in.
Bebe Cool, who recently performed at the Comedy Store, expressed his disappointment with the Uganda Revenue Authority’s decision to impose high taxes on Alex Muhangi.
He called on the government to intervene in the comedy and music industry and allow them to grow before imposing taxes.
Bebe Cool also pledged his support for Alex Muhangi, stating that he is a valuable asset to the industry and should be supported.
The news that the UMA venue will be occupied by another comedy entity called “Stress Clinic” has also caused concern among comedians as many fear that this will lead to unnecessary competition and a further decline in the industry.
