RAZZMATAZZ JUMPS INTO COMEDY CENTRAL’S ROAST OF SOMIZI
The Comedy Central Roast of Somizi just got a Razzmatazz treatment with former Minister, Fikile Mbalula who will bring the spirit of Asinavalo to the upcoming Comedy Central Roast of Somizi, which will air on Comedy Central (DStv channel 122) on Monday, 7 May 2018 at 21:00 CAT, followed with the extended uncensored version to Showmax subscribers from Tuesday, 8 May 2018.
The ANC Head of Elections, Fikile Mbalula, is no stranger to South Africans. Now instead of being roasted by the media and members of parliament, he will be setting fire to the stage and roasting some of the country’s most well-known personalities.
“I am looking forward to taking part in the Roast. It promises to be an exciting razzmatazz experience. This will be a chance to showcase the greatness of our ability to get together as people of Mzansi to laugh and connect,” ANC Head of Elections, Mr Mbalula said.
Dillon Khan, Vice President for Comedy Central and Creative Services at Viacom International Media Networks added, “In keeping with bringing spice to our roasts, Fikile is the perfect addition to our glittering talent line up. He is set to spark social with his “wanya tsotsi” fire!”
Candice Fangueiro, head of content: Africa at Showmax said, “So is Razzmatazz going to ‘fight fire with fire’ or are we about to find out that ‘Mr Fearfokkol’ isn’t so fearless after all? We’re super excited to have him on the Roast, and can’t wait for the uncensored, uncut version on Showmax.”
Comedy Central this week welcomed Metro FM as a partner to the Comedy Central Roast of Somizi, brought to you by Showmax.
The filming of the Comedy Central Roast of Somizi will take place on Thursday, 26 April 2018, at Gold Reef City’s Lyric Theatre, south of Johannesburg. Ticket’s at Computicket are sold out!
