Johannesburg: 8 November 2021: The upcoming Comedy Central Mini Roast is an innovative evolution of Comedy Central Africa’s classic Roast franchise. In a year where COVID has impacted live events and the opportunity to host the brand’s flagship Roast, the Mini Roast is an exciting spin-off that will be hosted by Lasizwe Dambuza, a seasoned Youtuber, social media sensation and star of MTV Africa’s @Lasizwe Fake it Till You Make It reality series. Lasizwe will take shots at topical issues relevant to the day and age we’re living through. From cancel culture, conspiracy theories to the Gen Z millennial divide, no topic is too taboo for our host. The Comedy Central Mini Roast with Lasizwe will debut on Comedy Central Africa social media platforms from Monday, November 8th.

Comedy Central Africa has been at the forefront of producing thrilling local content that has engaged, entertained, and shocked audiences. Whenever there is a Roast it is sure to be the subject of much debate and laughter on social media. The Roasts have produced firsts over the years and the Comedy Central Mini-Roast will be no different. The 4 part digital series premieres on Comedy Central’s digital platforms and will also air to a pan African audience on the channel (DStv Channel 122)

“I am so used to being trolled and roasted on social media so consider this my sweet revenge. Really excited to partner with Comedy Central Africa on this innovative take of the classic Roast which I have grown up watching and loving,” commented Lasizwe. “No topic will be off-limits, it is a Roast after all! Buckle up and get prepared for Roast like no other, your faves are definitely not safe,” he added.

Dillon Khan, Vice President of Comedy Central Africa commented, “ In a year where the pandemic has affected our ability to host our classic Roast, we had to come up with an innovative alternative that borrows from what makes the Roast so successful in an intimate and unique setting. VCNA is thrilled to give local talent a platform to authentically express themselves through the power of storytelling.”
