While the flamboyant Somizi Mhlongo prepares to get roasted at the Gold Reef City’s Lyric Theatre today, many of us can’t help but think back to Comedy Central’s Roast of Kenny Kunene in 2014.
Panellists for the Sushi King’s roast included John Vlismas, Tumi Morake, Jack Parow, Rian van Heerden, PJ Powers, Dineo Ranaka, Somizi and Khanyi Mbau – who flipped the script when they got the chance to roast one another.
British stand-up comedian Jimmy Carr, who has performed for millions of people in the UK, was the roast master and, boy, did he grill the panellists!
Now Somizi’s panellists include Nomzamo Mbatha, Fikile Mbalula, DJ Fresh, Ntsiki Mazwai, Skhumba, Schalk Bezuidenhout and Joanne Joseph – who will also get a go at one another. Somizi’s former Idols SA co-judge, Gareth Cliff, is the roast master and we can’t wait to see how he’ll bring the heat on the panellists.
For now though, DRUM is taking a trip down memory lane by throwing back to when Jimmy took shots at Nomzamo and co.
Catch Somizi’s roast on Comedy Central (DStv 122) on Monday 7 May at 9pm.
