“I'm very acute to the emotions of people and want people to feel seen. And when there are big political social issues, we can explain them easier through comedy,” shares comedian, broadcaster and leading digital creator, Munya Chawawa. “What’s that analogy? Something about putting medicine in a lasagna? Something about putting something unpleasant in something nice.”
Using humour to address socio-political issues, Munya gets candid with Rollacoaster about his relationship with comedy, growing up in Zimbabwe and the satirical genius of Spongebob.
