While the flamboyant Somizi Mhlongo prepares to get roasted
at the Gold Reef City’s Lyric Theatre today, many of us can’t help but think
back to Comedy Central’s Roast of Kenny Kunene in 2014.
Panellists for the Sushi King’s roast included John Vlismas,
Tumi Morake, Jack Parow, Rian van Heerden, PJ Powers, Dineo Ranaka, Somizi
and Khanyi Mbau – who flipped the script when they got the chance to roast
Now Somizi’s panellists include Nomzamo Mbatha, Fikile
Mbalula, DJ Fresh, Ntsiki Mazwai, Skhumba, Schalk Bezuidenhout and Joanne
Joseph – who will also get a go at one another. Somizi’s former Idols SA
co-judge, Gareth Cliff, is the roast master and we can’t wait to see how he’ll bring
the heat on the panellists.
For now though, DRUM is taking a trip down memory lane by
throwing back to when Jimmy took shots at Nomzamo and co.
Catch Somizi’s roast on Comedy Central (DStv 122) on Monday
7 May at 9pm.
