News that Kenyan comedian Eric Omondi was on the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon has generated excitement amongst his countrymen.
Omondi who is on a tour of the US on Tuesday made a cameo appearance in one of America’s most watched and highly rated late night television shows.
The Kenyan comedian known for his clever and witty jokes has termed the appearance, albeit brief, a dream come true.
The show, which features comic sketches, games and a guest interview and musical performance, has attracted high ratings since its 2014 premiere, consistently beating competition.
Upon his introduction to the crowd by Fallon, Eric, who appeared in his now famous Kenyan track and field uniform, began asking the audience to laugh because it was important to him.
Jimmy Fallon has hosted a number of prominent guests in his show including the current President of the United States, Donald Trump, former President Barrack Obama and Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o. The program airs weeknights on NBC.
Here are some of the comments by the Kenyans on Twitter, who are ungovernable.
