Zeddy told about her struggles auditioning multiple times to achieve success as a comedian.
She risked her paying job to go for auditions and eventually was given a chance on Churchill show Raw edition.
She stayed almost seven months before that happened
"Na si guarantee it will be aired, so if it wasn't funny, it wouldn't air"
It wasn't easy she told Jeff, especially since she and teacher Wanjiku were the only female comedians in the industry.
The late nights also affected her marriage
"Haikuwa rahisi to convince him that it was being recorded at night, he thought I was lying until the day he joined us to see for himself.

"I have never watched that episode, sina nguvu. I got so many calls, and I think the editor did not tell the audience that it was a prank"
The bashing was too much
"It brought issues to my in-laws, that I was saying he wasn't financially supporting us.
He left her over this .
