NTV on Monday, June 24 announced the return of the Churchill Show after two years since exiting the station.

In a meeting with the comedian Churchill Daniel Ndambuki popularly known as Churchill, the media house revealed that this move was after requests from the audience.

"The wait is over, Kenya! The legendary Churchill Show is making its grand return after years of requests from you, the fans!  We heard you loud and clear, and we're bringing back the side-splitting comedy, and hilarious sketches you love," NTV announced.

The media house asked its audiences to await a new season of entertainment. The details of when the show will air or the dates are yet to be disclosed.

Ndambuki was yet to share his reasons for returning to the media house or details of the new partnership. However, he was seen posing with the new contract alongside other officials from the media house and comedian Jasper Muthomi alias MC Jessy.

The announcement was met with excitement from Kenyans who asked the comedian to include other upcoming artists and offer a platform to nurture talent.

Ndambuki was also urged to incorporate new strategies to incorporate unique performances and new ones to attract a wider audience, especially the young generation.

Churchill show hosts different stand-up comedians and experts in different fields. Some renowned comedians have graced the TV show including Eric Omondi, MC Jessy, the late Fred Omondi, Butita, Mamitoh, Nasra, Chipukeezy and Sleepy David among others.

The show left NTV in February 2022 and partnered with TV47. Churchill through the parent company Laugh Industries joined hands with Cape Media.

After the migration, the show was taped at Mount Kenya University (MKU) in March before the show was officially relaunched.

Per reports, the partnership between the show and NTV initially failed after the two parties did not agree on the cost of production.

It was believed that the comedian was using equipment from another company to shoot the show leading to the disagreement.
