Eric Omondi explains why he quit comedy

Published on

In a recent interview with Plug TV, Eric Omondi addressed his evolving career path and his decision to move away from stand-up comedy.

When asked if he still considers himself a comedian, Omondi took a firm stance: “Sahizi [Right now] ”Eric Omondi is not a comedian because there is nothing funny in Kenya.”

He explained his reasoning, citing the current hardships faced by the country. He believes the somber mood and struggles Kenyans are enduring make comedy irrelevant.

“There is nobody who wants to laugh, people are depressed,” Omondi emphasized. He even suggested a temporary ban on comedy shows, arguing, “You can’t laugh in a funeral honestly.”

Omondi went on to describe the national atmosphere as one of grief and financial strain. He questioned the purpose of comedy in such circumstances, saying,

“Unachekesha nani? Kwa nini? Saa ngapi?” (Who are you making laugh? Why? At what time?).

Expressing confidence in his perspective, Omondi challenged the interviewer to ask random people on the street, believing they would confirm the lack of humor in the current situation.

Eric has been on the frontline of helping needy Kenyans through ‘sisi kwa sisi’ movement; where netizens are contributing to help their needy citizens.

Eric Omondi’s latest project is to connect jobless Kenyans with employers through his social media. He claims he has received over 12K messages after his proposal.
