Gilbeys Gin, in partnership with Punchline Comedy Club, has kicked off a series of comedy nights to celebrate connections and joy with family and friends. The weekly comedy nights at the Two Grapes Bar & Restaurant were capped off with the final ticketed comedy special dubbed ‘Yo Mama’ on February 3rd at the Mama Rocks Restaurant, Karen. The comedy nights promise to deliver a month of fun-filled laughter and offer consumers a refreshing and authentic experience with friends.
Consumers who attended the event had the opportunity to purchase specialized Gilbeys Gin cocktails paired with the food menu. They were also treated to Gilbey’s Gin bottles at special prizes, a gift of joy to take home after a full night of laughter. These promotions will run for every comedy night for the campaign’s duration.
Zipporah Ndung’u, Gilbeys Brand Manager, EABL, lauded the move by Punchline Comedy saying that the partnership is a toast to laughter, joy, and the spirit of celebration, and it’s exciting seeing the shared moments the comedy nights bring. She stressed commending the partnership as it promises to be as smooth and enjoyable as a sip of Gilbey Gin.
“We are thrilled about this ongoing partnership with Punchline Comedy to bring laughter and joy to the vibrant city of Nairobi. This collaboration is not just about comedy; it’s about creating unforgettable experiences that blend humor with the smooth taste of Gilbeys Gin. We believe laughter is a universal language, and together with our partners, we aim to elevate the entertainment scene in Nairobi,” Said Zipporah Ndung’u, Gilbeys Brand Manager, EABL.
