Everyone has had their lowest moment in their profession – one way or the other – and megastar, Eric Omondi is no exception.
The 42-year old comic defied all odds, scaling the heights to become Africa’s President of comedy but he has had his dark days as well.
In a Q&A session with fans online, a fan asked Eric about his worst experience on stage.
The stand-up comedian recalled how he tried to pull a Hollywood moment during the ‘Chaguo la Teeniez’ awards in 2010, only to be left high and dry.
He gave a shot to the kind of stunts drawn by Hollywood acts – coming down the stage from the roof top, only that his was a rope instead.
All was well until the rope got stuck, leaving him hanging mid-way for some 15 minutes.

That stood as one of the most embarrassing moments for Eric in his comedy career.
