Uganda’s top comedian Salvado has come out to reveal that he left a well paying job to venture into comedy.

Talking to Mpasho, the comedian says he earned over Ksh 130,000 as an intern in what he thought was a dream come true.

“I was an engineer, earning about Sh130,000 but I auditioned for comedy and made it to the top two. The other guy won”

Then he wanted to be challenged;

“In my heart, I felt this is what I was supposed to do. It was challenging, a challenge that i didn’t have in my engineering world. It was something that I could do effortlessly”

Well, Patrick Idringi, his real name later called it quits and started doing comedy, a journey he reveals has not been a bed of roses.

“My passion for comedy started way before my interest in engineering. I resigned and it became better and better.”
