Leading comedian Teacher Wanjiku has revealed the most challenging part in comedy. She says that the industry is dominated by men, making it hard for women to shine.
She told Massawe on Radio Jambo that:
Most people do not believe that a woman is able to make people laugh.You have to prove to them that you are better than even the men. There are fewer females in the comedy industry.
Teacher Wanjiku made her debut in acting and comedy 10 years ago, and yet she still remains relevant.
Being away for some time has helped me maintain my brand as a comedian. Understanding my brand and what I am telling my audience helps. While growing up, I always wanted to be a real teacher, and when I was in college doing mass communication, that really motivated me, although I was an average student in class
From there, it is hard work that has helped her thrive. “You have to keep pushing yourself in the industry. I am original and I work very hard for my content before I get into the studio,” she said.
As a comedian, Wanjiku has been responsive to feedback.
I sometimes leave my audience to control me, Always allow people to criticise you. If not, you will not manage.
This comes day after she stepped out looking like a snack and fans loved it.
