Thursday, November 3rd, marks a special day for the actress, singer, radio presenter, improv comedian and blogger Patricia Kihoro.
After what the hilarious multi-talented actress calls “an insanely brief hiatus of only two and a half years,” Kihoro is bringing back her show, Life In The Single Lane, on Thursday at The Alchemist in Nairobi, Kenya.
“Folks who’ve watched it say it’s pretty funny, and they laugh and cry quite a bit although I’m not sure if it’s at me, or with me. Either way, it’s good times for sure, plus I also throw in some singing!”
The updated show tells intriguing tales from Nairobi’s Dating scene. From the romantic, the heartbreaking and the downright hilarious situations, Kihoro and her talented co-stars, Jason Runo and Tobynashe weave expertly told tales through interactive story telling, improvised acting and carefully curated acoustic music comprising of some of Kihoro’s original songs and new renditions of songs she loves.
You can get tickets for the show here.
In the meantime, Capital Lifestyle sat down with Kihoro ahead of Life In The Single Lane to get to know her a little better.
What is your screensaver?
On my phone, It’s a picture of my feet next to some weapons I used as props for a shoot last year. There’s a gun and a machete and some rungus. It doesn’t mean anything though. I promise. I just like how I took the picture.
On my laptop, it’s just one of the generic ones that came with the Mac.
Live today like it’s your last or live today like it’s your first?
Live today, period. Just make it through the day I think. Some days are amazing and others are crap. So just get through them as best you can.
What’s your favourite dish?
Chapati with beans or ndengu.

I honestly don’t remember. I must have subconsciously erased it from my memory but I’m sure it was within the realm of a heartbreak.
Ghandi or Martin Luther King?
Martin Luther King.
What is your most treasured possession?
Man, I wish I had a more profound answer but it’s my phone to be honest. I use it for everything.

Serendipity! It’s fun a fun word to say and I love what it means. My life is full of many serendipitous events.

Thoughts about everything. My mind really struggles to shut down so I spend a lot of nights thinking about anything and everything.
