Because You Said So! is Kenya’s premiere improv comedy show. Founded by Jason Runo, BYSS involves getting a cast of improvisers to make up scenarios, skits and stories on the fly before a live audience.

The bimonthly event has gained the patronage of a consistent sold-out audience and growing coverage by the media.

The BYSS cast comprises of not just the Nairobi-based entertainers who get up on its stage, but also the brilliant audience that shows up to create the experience along with them.

The latest event took place at the Raddison Blu Hotel in Upper Hill, Nairobi, over the weekend.
