Comedy Central is stoking the furnaces for “The Comedy Central Roast of KK Fired up by Nando’s” with the scorching revelation that the Roasters for the extra hot comedy special will include flamboyant socialite and World Cup choreographer, Somizi Mhlongo, TV presenter Dineo Ranaka, and actress and tabloid queen Khanyi Mbau. The show takes place on 3 April 2014 at the Lyric Theatre, Gold Reef City, Johannesburg, and premieres exclusively on Comedy Central (DStv Channel 122) on Monday 28 April at 21:00 CAT.
Speaking about his involvement in the Roast, Somizi Mhlongo said, “I have got nothing but lurrv for the ex-con!”, while Dineo Ranaka showed signs of partiality for Roastee Kunene, saying, “Ag geez, Kenny!!! He is a rock star!” Slightly mystifyingly, Khanyi Mbau stated, “Sometimes good doesn’t need to be good. Sometimes bad is the good!”
Replied Kenny Kunene, “What a fabulous bunch of drama queens! I have mad love for all of them, but we’ll see who’s really gonna get roasted!”
A limited number of tickets are still available at Computicket and the Lyric Theatre Box Office priced R 700.
The names of the remaining six Roasters will be revealed later in March.
