Comedy Central (DStv Channel 122), will "roast" actor, musician, talk show host, activist, and poet Steve Hofmeyr.
The Comedy Central Roast Of Steve Hofmeyr (#RoastZA) will be recorded at The Lyric Theatre, Gold Reef City, Johannesburg on 11 September 2012 in front of a live audience - details of public tickets are not yet available. The Roast will premiere on Comedy Central on Monday, 24th September 2012.
Hofmeyr will reportedly be subjected to "a side-splitting evening of comic provocation, good-natured ribbing and outrageous anecdotes from family, friends, colleagues and comedians". And Hofmeyr will have the opportunity to have the last word.
Evert van der Veer, Head of Comedy Central, Africa, added: "We are very proud to be extending this classic Comedy Central franchise by shooting the first Roast in Africa. The Comedy Central Roast of Steve Hofmeyr will be a unique, laugh-out-loud event and TV show that should set a new benchmark for African comedy entertainment."
