Kenya's top comedy TV show Chuchill Live is back with a new name Churchill Show. Apart from the new name, there are very many changes in the show including the main comedians, the DJs and its content.

Some of the popular faces like JB Masanduku, who now hosts Comedy Show on NTV, is no longer there. In the new line-up, the first segment is hosted by MC Jesse, while the second segment is still hosted by Big Ted.

However some of the die-hard fans of the show were not impressed by the new changes and expressed their sentiments on social media. "@MwalimChurchill please change the name from Churchill Show to Churchill Live. Old name is what we familiar and relate to." tweeted one of the fans one fan

Meanwhile another fan had a different perceptive on the show; "No matter how much every KOT hates on Churchill Live for not being at par with the perceived standards, those guys are making money."

Fans who attended the live show felt that the most interesting scenes had been scrapped off from the edited TV version that aired on Sunday. They hoped that this would improve in the coming episodes.
