Eric Omondi, a staple name in the 254 entertainment industry is enlarging his audience reach and this week he just hit gold. He is in the USA where he is scheduled to perform in one of the Las Vegas sevens after party events alongside Nigerian artist Tekno.

Making the most of his USA trip, Eric made a stopover in New York and little did he know, his dream was to come true. He grabbed a moment to attend the famous “The Tonight Show” hosted by Jimmy Fallon. The show has a major traction and is a favorite stopover for celebrities including former president Obama. Eric had to clear his bucket list by being first Kenyan comic to take that stage, formally or informally.

Clad in his track & field regalia, very pronounced with the Kenyan colors, he asked for a minute and Jimmy did the honors of announcing “All the way from Kenya, Eric Omondi”. Eric proceeded to tell his joke and the crowd burst out making him elated.

I think the whole thing had played in his head before it actually materialized. From the dressing, the positioning of his camera and handing his phone to someone to document the whole 15 seconds of fame.
