Controversy

When jokes go too far

It’s all good and fun when a comedian engages the audience during a performance but when the delivery falls flat, things can be a little bit awkward. Mc Jessy was attacked by social media users after he described a man in his audience as ugly. This was a part of a joke in which he warned women about dating handsome men and advised them to go for average-looking guys. It’s at this point that he pointed a man from the crowd whom the camera picked out. Fans accused him of humiliating the man and demanded a public apology. Mc Jessy later apologised.   

Car

At the height of Churchill Live, Mc Jessy who was the co-host of the show shared a picture of himself in front of a Mercedez Benz 2012 model. The comedian celebrated his wins as he made fun of naysayers. Before he joined the Mercedez family, Mc Jessy owned a BMW.

House & Net Worth

Not much is known about Mc Jessy’s current residence as he tends not to publish anything about his personal life on social media. 

Being a co-host of Churchill Live came with its own perks and it opened the door for Mc Jessy. He now has his own online show, is a television and radio host, an emcee and now a politician, avenues that Mc Jessy uses to generate his wealth. However, his net worth is not in the public domain.
