Queen of comedy Anne Kansiime speaks about her journey to stardom

After the two Kings of Comedy shows last week, it is safe to say that Rwandans are greatly embracing the art of stand up comedy. However, it’s evident that the comedy industry still lacks gender balance.   In an exclusive interview with East Africa’s Queen of comedy, Anne Kansiime Kubiryaba, Women Today’s Doreen Umutesi finds out how the comedian and actress has been able to make her mark in the comedy industry.  “I know that stand up comedy is male dominated but surprisingly, my biggest support actually comes from them. For instance, at the last two shows of Kings of Comedy, they were more than happy to have me on board. They care for me and help me when I’m going through the material I have prepared before the show. They are more into helping me become better,” Kansiime explains.
