Gareth Cliff to have own talk show on TV

2014-04-24 10:54

Radio DJ Gareth Cliff is continuing to explore new avenues, including the launch of his own TV show, which will be broadcast five days a week on Comedy Central Africa.

The Gareth Cliff Show Live on Comedy Central will be aired live every Monday to Friday on Comedy Central (DStv Channel 122), on comedycentralafrica.com and on cliffcentral.com from May 1.

The live breakfast show, airing from 7:35am to 8:50am every weekday, will feature calls, live interviews and a cheeky sideways look at the day’s news stories from Cliff’s new CliffCentral.com project, helped along by Cliff’s regular posse of collaborators, which includes Damon Kalvari, Leigh-Ann Mol, Mabale Moloi and Siya Sangweni-Fynn.

“With the dramatic changes in the broadcast landscape in a relatively short period of time, people are already listening to radio everywhere except on the radio, with online being the frontrunner,” Cliff said.

“The partnership with Comedy Central not only gives our audience a traditional platform to join us as they’re getting ready to start the day, but is an opportunity to uncover fresh local content in a way that has never been done before in South Africa – reality radio!”

Evert van der Veer, channel head of Comedy Central Africa, said: “This is Comedy Central’s first daily live show in the African market and we are thrilled to be partnering with a host of Gareth Cliff’s calibre, polish and experience to bring this new comedy concept to these shores. The addition of a localised editorial voice to put things in perspective for South African viewers adds a broad new dimension to our comedy portfolio.”
