Over the past few weeks we have seen some sizzling roasts with fierce competition from all of the roasters. Now, the heat will be cranked to the max as we go into the semi-finals in Roast Battle on Comedy Central (DStv channel 122) on Monday, 13 August, at 21h30.
The first round of the semi-finals sees a coastal showdown with Durban’s dynamic Robby Collins vs. Cape Town’s self confessed ‘farm boy’ Carl Weber. Then we have everyone’s favourite ‘rotund’ legend Jason Goliath vs. ‘the prince of one-liners’ Yaaseen Barnes. Those who spew the hottest flames will get themselves a spot in the finals.
Comedy legend John Vlismas is the ultimate Roast Master along with heavyweight comedians Tumi Morake and Kagiso Lediga making up the Comedy Central Roast Battle judging panel.
