Entertainment phenomenon and “unradio” host Gareth Cliff is continuing to explore exciting new pastures with his own pan-African TV show – going LIVE 5 days a week on Comedy Central Africa. Irreverent new talk show “The Gareth Cliff Show Live on Comedy Central” will be aired live every Monday to Friday on Comedy Central (DSTV Channel 122), on comedycentralafrica.com and on cliffcentral.com from 1 May. The live breakfast show, airing from 07.35 CAT to 08.50 CAT every weekday, will feature calls, live interviews and a cheeky sideways look at the day’s news stories from Cliff’s new “CliffCentral.com” project, helped along by Cliff’s regular posse of collaborators including Damon Kalvari, Leigh-Ann Mol, Mabale Moloi and Siya Sangweni-Fynn.
According to Gareth Cliff, “With the dramatic changes in the broadcast landscape in a relatively short period of time, people are already listening to radio everywhere except on the radio, with online being the frontrunner. The partnership with Comedy Central not only gives our audience a traditional platform to join us as they’re getting ready to start the day, but is an opportunity to uncover fresh local content in a way that has never been done before in South Africa – reality radio!”
