Africa’s Premier Improv Comedy Show Because You Said So, Set To Return This August

Great news for Because You Said So (BYSS) fans as the show will be returning this August. This follows its last edition which was dubbed BYSS In The Wild that took place from 11th-13th December last year at the Kilima Safari Camp in Amboseli.

Because You Said So is an improv comedy show which was founded by Jason Runo in 2014. It involves getting a cast of improvisers to make up comic scenarios, skits, and stories before a live audience.

According to the organizers, this upcoming edition of BYSS will be the 7th Anniversary special edition and it is scheduled to take place on 7th August 2021. Featuring top comics and thespians Patricia Kihoro, Jason Runo, Yafesi Musoke, June Gachui, Mugambi Nthiga, Kevin Maina, and Justin Karunguru, the organizers are promising to deliver an amazing show as usual.

BYSS has garnered a big number of fans over time and now prides itself in being Africa’s premier improv comedy show. Last year, one of the BYSS shows was postponed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic and this forced the organizers to take the online route through a virtual version dubbed BYSSTAY HOME.
