“It’s all about entertaining people. The audience can expect dirty, nasty and funny jokes. Nobody cares, least of all Somizi. So if you think someone is going to walk away from this hurt and saddened, then you’re watching the wrong show – that’s what soap operas are for,” he said.

“I don’t think I am the scariest person Somizi has come across in this industry. We are going to have lots of info, good  and juiciness. Some people will cry, but it won’t be Somizi.”

The Comedy Central Roast of Somizi, in partnership with Showmax, is taking place on 26 April at the Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City.

The roast will air on Comedy Central on 7 May at 9pm for DStv premium subscribers, while an extended, uncensored version will be made available on Showmax from 8 May.

Tickets for this highly anticipated show have already sold out, but due to popular demand, an additional 100 tickets have been released on Computicket, so you better hurry if you want to get your hands on one of the hottest tickets right now.
