Johannesburg - Legendary actor and comedian, Joe Mafela, is to be honoured by some of Mzansi's funniest comedians.

It was announced on Wednesday that the Sgudi Snaysi actor would be the recipient of a Lifetime Achiever Award at this year's Savanna Comics Choice Awards to be held next month.

But before he takes to the stage at MonteCasino in Johannesburg to collect his award, he has to first go through a torturous roasting!

That's right! Ol' Joe will also be the recipient of a roasting by some of the country's funniest comics.

The roasting, similar to the one held for girl wonder Justin Bieber recently, will take place at Parker's Comedy Club in Johannesburg on 15 July.

Tickets are limited. So if you, like us, are planning to go, you better grab your tent and prepare for a long night of waiting in line!
