Wanjiku the Teacher marks 10 years in comedy at the Alliance Française where it all began. Kenya’s most recognized female comedian’s career took off at the Alliance Française back in 2009 when she appeared as Wanjiku, a Swahili teacher with a deep Kikuyu accent, in the Heartstrings Kenya play ‘The 43rd Kenyan Tribe’.
Her career as a standup comedian started building on the monthly ‘Hot Seat’ comedy shows staged at the Alliance Française, as well as the ‘Churchill Live Show’. Wanjiku the Teacher gained traction in 2013 on NTV. Teacher Wanjiku has recently been feted with a Lifetime Achievement Award for a decade in comedy in the USA.
The show will also feature sketches by the Alliance Française students and a guest appearance by Larry Asego.
