"I Used to Shave Dead Bodies in a Mortuary," Churchill Show Comedian Mtumishi
Sept. 16, 2019
Mtumishi, who dropped out of school in Form Two and became a street boy, said working as a barber in a mortuary was one of the most difficult menial jobs he undertook to earn a living.
It is while working on the dead that Mtumishi made the turning point in his career choice. This happened after working on the body of a friend.
“I worked as a barber in a mortuary. I used to shave the dead. It was a tough job, though it gave birth to my career. One day, I shaved a friend of mine and that experience really haunted me.
“I went back home and did a bit of soul searching. My dream was to be a comedian or actor and I knew, I was not going to die before achieving this. I decided that I will no longer seek employment but rather, exploit my talent,” he told the Nairobian.
The funnyman also opened up about being abandoned by his father at a young age.
“My father abandoned me when I was in class two. My mother did not support my venture in comedy. When my father saw me on TV, he called me requesting I get him a job.
“I don’t have any problem with him since I don’t know why he separated with my mother and walked away. All is in the past now,” he said.
