After their successful show early last year, the dynamic comedy duo of Madrat & Chicco –real names Dickson Lubega and Frank Mubiru– have been on a roll, with their comedy acts and shows growing by the number.
And by the time next week starts, the profile of the ever-improving duo will have risen a notch higher, for the comic pair is set to headline performances at the prestigious Singleton challenge slated to take place at Entebbe Golf Club this Saturday.
The duo will be the lead entertainers for golfers and guests at the exclusive 19th Hole Experience at the Entebbe Club –and you can be sure that after the golfers are done with Round two of the challenge on the greens, they will have to laugh their stomachs out.
Madrat and Chicco will not be the only comedians in the house; they will be performing alongside famed President Museveni imitator Teacher Mpamiire, as well as the event’s host Patrick Salvador Idringi.
When asked about how they are able to communicate at corporate events, given they came through the ranks as a primarily downtown comedy outfit, the duo were candid in their inevitably funny way:
“There is a saying that ‘desperate situations call for desperate measures.’ We didn’t complete school and truth be told, our English is not the best, but we will speak it when we have to. At most corporate events, we are pushed to the wall, but at the end of the day we come out of it and smile all the way to the bank. People should expect the best”.
The grand prize for the winning pair of this year’s Singleton Challenge is a fully-paid golfing trip to watch the OMEGA Dubai Desert Classic, a series which has featured some of golf’s best players, including Tiger Woods and Henrik Stenson.
There will also be business class return air-tickets for the first and second runner-up pairs, and for the winners of the subsidiary events in the men’s and ladies’ categories. Other prizes include monthly subscription packages on DStv, treats at Serena Hotel, golf accessories and HTC goodies.
