kelven little : Lol all the people mad about the "failed in life" comment... Maybe it's *almost* as insulting as high school and college students assuming the entire continent of Africa is some mud hut wasteland where everyone is starving and drinking muddy parasite infested water? And that they could somehow help? Yes, you see the commercials asking for donations because some villages are like that. Some places in the States and Canada are just as bad. No clean water for decades. Extreme poverty. Low life expectancy. High infant mortality. Etc. Etc. Using comedy to make a point and it hits too close to home for some 😂😂

The Henryssons life : Exactly like here in Sweden, its people who have failed in life that brag about helping in Africa

Gustavo S. : Actually he’s not joking

cholericqlare : “And I went out to help in Uganda.Ah! “ The sarcasm is in that playfully condescending way we explain nonsense as Ugandans is too much. 🤣🤣🤣

Mobie Mapolisa : I am reading comments to see people who are still working at the mall

Christine Nalubega : And they always want to tell the whole world about how they helped out in AFRICA. Ask them what did you do there. Oh we gave out clothes

StarShynInNow : He is a BEAUTIFUL, black man!

Joseph Buckingham : I love this. All the western tourists give the doctors and engineers who go to developing countries to genuinely help the population or transfer and teach skills and vocations a bad name by taking selfies and setting up tire swings. If you're going to travel to the developing world for a humanitarian reason do it for the good of their country - doing so for a vanity project on social media just disrespects their culture and nation.

Mejja Jk : Dudes here be like"that's not a joke" yeah it's true,comedy comes from what goes on daily throughout our lives,presented on an audience like a proverb and a laughter at the same time😂

Krystina James : Lol as a Community Worker that still has a job at the mall... He's right lol. They don't need my help. 😂

Nadia : All the mad ppl in the comments! LOOOL he's right

T. R. : The comedy guy (and those like him) is deeply ignorant and a snob. One of the main reasons why people in his home country are in such predicament and despair. Research showed that the poor give the most to poorer people, rich folks do very little to nothing in comparison, they don't care.

jimmyfly : It’s funny cuz it’s true.

Lunyoro Sandra : Proud of u simeon

favtmofyr allsesns : Super sensitive africans always thinking people need to tiptoe around them.

cohen cyrus : Hehhehe simeon.. that's right though


Ange Waters : Lululemon requires all of their employees to do a weird Scientology based thing called landmark (Google it) Fucked up culture/religion money making MLM stuff. I had a friend 'Splain it to me and I genuinely thought she was asking for help. And then she marries in and has kids. They're home schooled and so is she. By her landmark, self-satisfied husband. Holy cow. Yikes.

Niqq Kerah : I disagree with this comedian on the "Failed in life" part. but however as an african its offensive sometimes that yall are so ignorant of whats actually happening. we here know everything about you guys but the perception of africa to y'all is a jungle or a poverty stricken place that is doomed with disease poverty, hunger and all that, but thats what your media is feeding you guys. Most countries here are alright apart from sections here and there. So the comment from that girl was kinda offensive to him because if you have a big house stocked with food, you'd find it offensive when someone tells you that they came to feed your family.

youngmane : Wait, so being a 30-something no-name comedian is considered more successful than working in a mall? Is what you do and where you live indicative of whether you're doing well?

Clarissa Gafoor : Not Nigerians! I KNOW those ladies are smarter than I am....and Asian ladies....and ladies from Uganda...etc!etc!!


Vaalotu Iakopo : But the Lululemon worker earning more money than the rest of your Kampala office workers. If not, then why then why the whole UK and other western Countries over populated by the African........You can cracked the joke but we're going to have the last laugh

jessicaaudate : Ooohhhh that was funny! (Can I get a job there so I can take three weeks off, please?)

MarklarsonTube : 115 people are over 21 and work in a mall

Emin Kerim : 104 person working at the mall

Soul man : That's wrong, it doesn't matter where you work help is help. Comedian should think twice before stand.


Cat 106 : What ungrateful he is! Is he even successful? or maybe he thought he is like Kevin Hart. This guy is low profile comedian who earns little too.

Lindo Mathenjwa : Im 25 and I work at the Mall...I guess I have failed in life so says the joke.

Amal Bint Mubarak : #Amen

Conspiracy Faerie : Elitist twat. There's not enough demand for us all to be mediocre stand-up comedians.

Ogba Icheku : Tell them: As if you can help someone you do not know.

Tournel Henry : If a White person made this joke about immigrants coming into Canada or US, he'll probably be in trouble by now

mariajesus m : arthur is soooo right! lol

jacqueline Murphy : Everyone’s taking what he said so seriously, probably because they know it’s true. He pretty clearly said what his country needed (medicine, nurses, and engineers) and he never said that’s what every country in Africa needs. If a country needs help they should be the ones telling us what help to give rather than someone deciding that Africa “needs” them. How is a retail worker going to do anything to help with medicine or engineering? Plus the fact that many people do it to look good like the youtubers who give food to the homeless just for views. It’s great if someone wants to help but if you’re not qualified do it from home and donate. (Also, working a minimum wage job at a mall at 21+ is not successful at all and I don’t think anyone working a job like that would disagree. It’s meant to be a kids starter job and you must have next to no standards if you consider that successful. Might as well call homelessness successful because you aren’t dead)

Екатерина Архангельская : That's just rude. Maybe she doesn't have any special expertise, but she had time and hands that she was willing to give to help somebody. And he just offenses her because she works in a shop?

Corina Schiopu : so true I hate the ads in the tube "donate for Africa" with a picture of a skinny child... did they ask for your help? an entire continent? have you solved your own country problems?

pokerphil1st : Brilliant.

Sharon Ouma : Y’all too sensitive in these comments. Lol if you are from Africa this is honestly funny. Some people just way too butt hurt to get that it’s a joke

Chuck Taylor : Africa wants people with skills is OK. Trump wants skilled people and he's a racist.


Eli Garcia : You're only getting air time because white people said so. You dark midnight son of a b****

Vegabond100 : as if he's very successful

Unity : LOL preach man preach

G : Hoping he doesn't truly look down at people working at malls, nothing wrong with that. Retail workers work hard and there's nothing wrong with wanting to help people. But it is comedy so it's just a joke, nothing to take too seriously.

Martin Heath : Uganda = Oil = a rich and corrupt elite stealing the country's resources to buy palaces, London real estate, champagne and private jets while their people starve. Hilarious country

mundotaku : lol, this was great.

eurosensazion : I got an accent and I was born in Canada lol. People think I'm from the USA...honestly common. But I used to travel a lot with parents and pick-up a lot of languages and their accents when making new friends as a youth so it stuck.

MissCello045 N : Hahahaha thats funny.
