Revelers are ushered off the motor boat at Mutoola beach in Mukono

Uganda’s entertainment industry has had a lot of innovations but the one addition that will stay because it took the Ugandan audience by storm is the comedy on water cruise that takes place every second week of the month. 
 
Organized by Morgan international, this year’s first version of comedy on water happened last Saturday.
 
It threatened to rain at about 2:00pm but people waiting at the port-bell pier were not discouraged. A huge number of them kept trickling in; they filled up the waiting pier at port bell, awaiting a fun filled voyage to Mutoola.
 
At 4:00pm, when everyone expected was on board, the Mv Armani set sailed with loud music blaring through the air as the revelers warmed up for the heated session of hilarity that would ensue onboard.

It was supposed to be a 40 minutes journey to the Mutoola beach in Mukono but due to demand from the revelers who were enjoying gut wrecking jokes, the pilot was asked to slow down. 
 
He then took his time and so did the comedians, Dolibondo and Bright Onak of the Laftaz comedy group and the inadvertent Mc of the day aggravated their level of jokes to send the now zonked revelers in a thunderous laughter. 
 
The same fun happened when they docked on the beach at Mutoola and back on board till they came back at 12:00 midnight and slowly, they were ushered off the boat.
