Kansiime Anne Biography
Kansiime Kubiryaba’s Anne Kansiime is a Ugandan entertainer, comedian, and actress who was born on April 13, 1986. Some African media outlets have dubbed her “Africa’s Queen of Comedy.”
She was born in Mparo, which is now part of the Rukiga District in Uganda’s Western Region. Mparo was a part of Kabale District at the time of her birth. Her father is a retired banker, while her mother is a stay-at-home mom. Kansiime was a student at Kabale Primary School. She attended Bweranyangi Girls’ Senior Secondary School in Bushenyi for her O-Level and A-Level education. She graduated from Makerere University, Uganda’s oldest and largest public university, with a Bachelor of Arts in Social Science.
Kansiime began participating in drama skits performed by the theatre group Theatre Factory at the Uganda National Theatre in Kampala’s central business district in 2007, while still an undergraduate at Makerere University. When Theatre Factory went out of business, she joined Fun Factory, which took its place. Every Thursday evening, the group performs. The best skits were aired on NTV Uganda in the Barbed Wire TV show, which later evolved into U-Turn. In the MiniBuzz series, she collaborated with Brian Mulondo as a Taxi interview conductor, providing comic video dramatizations of topical issues that random passengers discussed.
