Enter now to win a ticket for you and a partner to witness the burn at the Comedy Central Roast of Somizi, brought to you in partnership with Showmax.

Burn this into your memory: The Lyric Theatre, Gold Reef City, 26 April 2018.

That’s when Somizi will be going down, in the highly anticipated Roast of Somizi, brought to you by Comedy Central and Showmax.

The Roast will be coming to Comedy Central (DStv channel 122) on Monday, 7 May at 21:00 CAT, and will be available as an extended, uncut, uncensored version to Showmax subscribers from Tuesday, 8 May 2018.

And now you could win a ticket to the Roast for you and a partner. Witness the burn in person!


The popular Roast format sees the panel of South Africa’s most hilarious comedians and outspoken personalities “roasting” each other before taking aim at the roastee - in this case, Somizi aka Somgaga aka one of SA’s most successful choreographers and radio celebrities, who says he has what it takes to withstand the burn because he’s “thick skinned”.

But when the illustrious panellists who will be roasting you are Kurt Darren, Skhumba, Schalk Bezuidenhout and Ntsiki Mazwai, under the watchful eye of the Roast Master Gareth Cliff, it might be easier said than done to take their burns with a pinch of salt.

Want a chance to see IRL whether Somgaga can withstand the shade thrown his way by Kurt Darren, Skhumba, Schalk Bezuidenhout and Ntsiki Mazwai, not to mention Roast Master Gareth Cliff on 26 April?

Enter our competition to win one of five sets of double tickets to to the Roast of Somizi valued at R200 per ticket. Entries close on Monday, 23 April 2018, so get off your butt and enter. Winners will be randomly selected.
