Covid-19 has changed the way many entertainers do their jobs.

Whether it’s doing online concerts or joining TikTok to connect to their fans more, celebrities are doing what they can to keep busy or making money. Talk-show hosts have also had to rethink how they do their jobs – and many (like us) chose the work-from-home option. Here are 4 talk shows that are now done from home.

1. Mzansi Live

Pearl Modiadie and Sthembiso Khoza have been working with Mzansi Wethu (DStv 163) to "chat to the who’s who of Mzansi about what they’ve been up to during the lockdown".

Their show airs every weekdays at 17:00.

2. The Daily Show

South Africa’s pride and joy, Trevor Noah, has gone into self-isolation and decided to stay in the US because of work.

Trevor has been interviewing respective public figures, on what is now called The Daily Social Distancing Show – and it’s still just as entertaining as the real show.

3. The Ellen Show

Ellen DeGeneres has started having remote celebrity interviews. She also posts more content on her YouTube channel, Ellentube.

4. The Wendy Williams Show

Wendy Williams is also doing interviews from home and giving fans the platform to be a part of her #AskWendy segment that she usually has on the live show. She has also temporarily changed the show’s name to Wendy @ Home.
