‘Churchill Show’ Comedienne Zeddy Accuses Director Victor Ber of Exasperation
Churchill Show’s creative director Victor Ber has been accused of frustrating comedians, at least according to the show’s resident humorist Zainabu Zeddy. In a lengthy post on Wednesday, she described Ber as a “depression maker”, claiming he makes auditioning artists rehearse for three days only for them to not perform on stage on the filming day. “Kwa wale hawajui, ndio perform Churchill lazima uende rehearsal 3days so Ber hatakwambia day one hajafeel jokes zako.Atakufanyisha P.E hadi siku ya kurecord show,kama bado 2hrs anatoa program ya wale wata perform.Ukiangalia list ya performers unapata jina lako haliko”, read part of the post. In addition, she also accused Ber of driving the late Kasee into depression, “After nimepost natafuta Kasee mlimtafuta mkampumbaza siku chache ukamchocha atakua anachapa show alikuja rehearsals mara mingi sana lakini wapi ukamwambia ataperfom show ya Machakos. Kufika huko ukamyima show.”
Another resident at Churchill, Sleepy David has, however, come out in defense of Ber’s integrity. “For all of you Judging a Man you don’t even know, you need to meet Ber. Great Guy. He has payed (sic) his Price in Building the Industry. Ask yourself why NO comedian is saying anything about this Man amidst the Drama”, reads part of what he posted on Instagram, claiming the accusations were unfounded.
Victor Ber has since denied allegations leveled against him by Zeddy. The show’s lead, Churchill is yet to comment on the matter.

Stop talking bad of Churchill.
Point to note
1. Churchill show is just a platform for comedians to advertise themselves, it’s like a school infact comedians should start paying fees N/B a prime time advert costs 400,000 per second
2. Churchill begs no one to be on his show pic.twitter.com/2HfqGdS2jq

Churchill show was the thing before the internet opened the avenues for creatives to grow as individuals. If you are a comedian, just focus on your art and don’t go to audition at Churchill & collect depression there. It’s sad what Comedians go through. Mulamwah aliibiwa Jokes.?

‘Beavis and Butt-Head’ Gets a Reboot
Comedy Central has announced it will be reviving “Beavis and Butt-Head” animated classic. The Mike Judge-created series deal will include a two-season order and possible spinoffs, and specials to follow soon after. “We are thrilled to be working with Mike Judge and the great team at 3 Arts again as we double down on adult animation at Comedy Central,” said Chris McCarthy, the network’s executive.
He further reiterated on the 90s MTV comedy being “a defining voice of a generation, and we can’t wait to watch as they navigate the treacherous waters of a world light-years from their own.” “Beavis and Butt-Head” not only ran for eight seasons but also had a film, “Beavis and Butt-Head Do America” which grossed $63million at the box office in 1996.
According to IMDB, the series synopsis reads: Animated MTV series about two teenage heavy-metal music fans who occasionally do idiotic things because they’re bored. For them, everything is “cool” or “sucks.”
‘Beavis and Butt-Head’ is returning … Mike Judge will oversee two new seasons and spinoffs on Comedy Central
