Summertime in Minneapolis, a time to change your wardrobe, bring out the mosquito repellent, go fishing, barbequing, cycling, and of course attend the “Annual Redykulass Concert”. This is the place where the jokes are home grown for the Kenyan crowd, by your farmers of comedy; Walter Mongare, Tony Njuguna and John Kiarie.
Redykulass represents the next level of comedy from the days of Ojwang’ (who has made a special appearance in a past year) and Mama Kayai. A ‘Redyks’ event promises you unedited political satire, a hilarious view of the state of the Republic of Kenya, and the wananchi who inhabit it, and of course the nostalgic appearances of H.E. President Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi, H.E. President Mwai Kibaki, and his beloved Lucy (a.k.a. Roo-ss-ey).
The 2006 US Tour, promoted by Kilimanjaro Entertainment, makes its Minneapolis stop on Saturday July 15th 2006. The promoter’s website promises new jokes, new material. Visit http://www.kilimanjaroentertainment.com for updates on the event’s times and location. Bring your funny bone to this family affair. A.Meja plans to have a riotous & rousing good time with the revolutionary Redykulass.
