“She’s dated more famous gay men than I have.” Somizi

“She’s actually done a lot for the LGBTI… No, she has.” – Somizi


Pre-roast fear factor: 7/10
Hottest roast: To Gareth Cliff: “How does it feel to be back on TV? Don’t get used to it; it’s won’t last very long.”
Coldest shade: “She’s actually done a lot for the LGBTI… No, she has. She’s dated more famous gay men than I have.” Somizi
Post-roast rating: 8/10

DJ FRESH | Pre-roast fear factor: 8/10

Hottest roast: “This is probably the biggest audience you’ve had since 5FM; how does it feel? You know, you’ve lost so much relevance that nobody even hates you anymore… The moral of the Gareth Cliff story is, ‘Don’t start a spaza radio…’”
Coldest shade: “Fresh has released 38 albums. Well, since he doesn’t actually produce music like some of us, he’s just released 38 playlists. Fresh, we all like burning mix CDs for our friends, but we don’t call it a career.” Kurt Darren
Post-roast rating: 8/10

FIKILE MBALULA | Pre-roast fear factor: 10/10

Hottest roast: “Ntsiki, you are living proof that fame has a plus one… Your sister is famous for being the lead singer in Bongo Muffin and you are just an angry muffin.”
Coldest shade: “You are useless… The ANC promoted Bathabile Dlamini. And they demoted you. And you are sober.” Skhumba
Post-roast rating: 8/10

KURT DARREN. | Pre-roast fear factor: 9/10

Hottest roast: “Somizi, I did some research before I came here. I even read your book. Your book is so thin, I use it as a bookmark when I read the newspaper.”
Coldest shade: “Kurt Darren at the moment doesn’t look like Bruce Jenner before the operation or after the operation. He looks like Bruce Jenner when he was in that halfway-through phase. When you’re not sure if he’s a 50-year old man or a 60-year old lesbian.” Schalk Bezuidenhout

Post-roast rating: 8/10

Disclaimer: The show you’re about to watch is not for sensitive viewers. It contains commentary littered with strong language, prejudice, personal insults, unsavoury references to participants’ family members, disagreeable body part comparisons, and much, much more. We’re being serious here: if you are under 18 or easily offended, this is not the show for you.

But as roast master Gareth Cliff said, “It’s an entertainment show. No one in their right mind is going to take this seriously. It’s like Twitter…”
