Churchill; Kenyan, Central and East African comedy juggernaut joins My Child: Teenage Mutant Azanians in their Pan-African pursuits.

Not yet content with their Pan-African comedy talent recruitment, My Child: Teenage Mutant Azanians have added Churchill, the Kenyan, Central and East African comedy behemoth to their cast. In the words of My Child: Teenage Mutant Azanians exec-producer, Nick Wilson; “Of the top 10 comedians in Africa, we believe we have all 10 of them on our cast. Churchill (Kenya) joins new recruits Carl Joshua Ncube (Zim), Salvado (Uganda), Daliso Chaponda (Malawi) and Basketmouth (Nigeria).  Including the original cast members of Richelieu B Beaunoir (SA), Nina Hastie (SA), Mpho Popps (SA), Trevor Gumbi (SA) and Griffy 2Trillion (US); this is unquestionably, the strongest cast of African comedians ever assembled for a TV series.”

Churchill, an icon of Kenyan comedy, ranked 14th amongst a list of Kenya’s 100 Most Influential People in 2014. To put that into perspective, the list is topped by incumbent president, Uhuru Kenyatta and Churchill is the only comedian/entertainer in the top 15. The Churchill Show, hosted by Churchill and renowned for his unique and characteristic brand of standup comedy, is currently in its 5th season and is the number one rated TV show in East and Central Africa, reaching over 8,000,000 eyeballs weekly.

My Child: Teenage Mutant Azanians Teaser
My Child: Teenage Mutant Azanians tells the story of Professor Afronaut, Africa’s top technocrat, as he pilots the maiden voyage of Africa’s first space tourism programme, together with Africa’s top leaders and celebrities. Whilst in flight, a cunning chimpanzee is released from his cage in stowage and in the ensuing bedlam the ape bites the spacecraft’s nuclear stabilizer. There is an almighty atomic explosion and all these leaders and celebrities are cross-mutated with adolescent animals. These animal-human hybrids return to Earth and are subsequently exiled to the land of Azania. It is here that Professor Afronaut founds the Nelson Mandela School for Gifted Mutants, with melodrama and comedy playing out amongst the characters with very different backgrounds and divergent personalities.  Offensive, satirical and animated, the show is best described as South Park spliced with Animal Farm.
