Who are the Richest Comedians in Kenya? Though the comedy industry is young, there is a small population which has made good money out of it, thanks to the ever growing industry motivated by Kenyans willing to listen to jokes for laughter. Here are the richest comedians in Kenya.
#1. Daniel Ndambuki aka Churchill
#2. Walter Mongare
Walter Mongare popularly known as Nyambane is one of the oldest and yet richest comedians in the industry. He was known from the times of redykulas, which opened gates for comedy in the country. Nyambane worked at kiss FM alongside Caroline Mutoko before he was poached by the government and was made Head of Radio for Kenya broadcasting corporation. Later he joined Kisii County as director of communication and finally Nairobi County as director of communication. He has invested in entertainment industry, real estate, agriculture and transport.
During those years, he used to earn Ksh 250,000 alongside radio queen, Caroline Mutoko
Nyambane makes over Ksh 1 million per month from his investments. This makes him one of the richest comedians in Kenya.

Felix, popularly known as Jalango works at Royal Media’s Hot 96. He also features in various advertisements, has a recording studio and he is also involved in several businesses. Jalango was at one time featured on the popular K24 program, Young Rich, where he revealed his net worth.
