Churchill’s new show ‘Ultimate Comic’ hit by controversy over one of it’s judge’s behavior

People are appalled by the judge’s behavior.

As its common with many reality shows, there is always that judge who is controversial and is often called ‘mean’, ‘nasty’ and ‘hard-to-please’.

For X-Factor it's Simon Cowell who has been called ‘heartless’ and in Kenya, we can hardly forget the way Judge Ian used to yell out ‘Pathetic!’ to contestants who failed to impress in their TPF performances.

This time it’s Ultimate Comic’s judge Tony Njuguna of the Redykulas fame who has been put on blast for being too brutal and sometimes even dozing off during the comedic performances.

Taking to Twitter, fans of the show tweeted out these sentiments expressing their outrage on how Tony treats contestants on the talent show:

Shirley_Sein: @Shirley_Sein: I’m being forced to watch Ultimate Comic on Maisha Magic and Tony Njuguna is behaving like an a**... Kwani he was forced to be a judge??

Joy Gethin@JoyGethin:L I've been watching but am not happy with Tony's attitude. It’s best to correct someone without having 2 embarrass anyone #UltimateComicKE

Msupa254@Mary_Muk: Zero chills from Judge Tony, ati hapa si Ultimate Drama but Ultimate Comic, lol. #UltimateComicKE

GOLD‏ @Tolbert_KE: @MaishaMagicEast like it’s the norm in talent search shows, I expected @tonjuguna to be tough on the contestants during auditions but soften as the show progresses but this is different #UltimateComicKE @MwalimChurchill

SokoAnalyst @SokoAnalyst: I feel as though Tony is bad for #UltimateComicKE given the fact that he displays his judgement before the comedian is done.  All participants are being discouraged even before they start.  Not good for such a brilliant concept @MaishaMagicEast

Catherine Anyango@catherineowino: #UltimateComicKE I dunno why Tony Njuguna sleeps when people are performing. I think there are better ways of expressing urself. If someone slept when you were starting out,  you would not be where you are today. In fact, you were never funny anyway...and we tried not to sleep nkt

Manuel Mikewa @ManuelMikewa: It's shameful when productions see it fit to get these "Tough" judges in tv shows. As someone who has great respect for Tony Njuguna, it's DISGUSTING watching him tear down young, comics like this!! #UltimateComicKe

Is Tony too harsh or is he just giving them a taste of how brutal an audience can be if you fail to impress?

Be the judge every Saturday from 8.30pm on Maisha Magic East.
