©️ THE current coronavirus (Covid-19) scourge has become a centre of jokes by local comedians with the 21-day lockdown providing a fertile ground for comic relief.

Comedians have seen an opportunity for jokes touching on domestic issues arising from couples that are being forced to spend more time together and other challenges during the lockdown with the main message encouraging people to stay home.
Award-winning comedian Long John promised his followers that he will be sharing videos based on their testimonies during the lockdown.
He came up with a skit giving “advice” to his followers on how to save toilet paper during the lockdown.
Teen comic Ray Vines has explored challenges brought about by the lockdown in which potential clashes between residents and law enforcement agents would break out.
He shared a video being beaten for violating the curfew while going out to buy bread.
Comedienne Mai Titi views the lockdown as a blessing in disguise for married men to have time with their families.
She is filmed in a prayer thanking God for the quarantine period highlighting how men will not enjoy the moment.
In the prayer the entertainer said married women are the happiest just by the thought of the husband being at home.
“Husbands are not happy, but you did it for as reason. No more small houses,” she says in her production.
Madam Boss had a skit on the potential of couples clashing over the slightest of things with a skit engaging in a fight with her husband who is seemingly uninterested, affected by being at home.
