Well, not really. But they are going to roast him.
Kenny Kunene, according to Wikipedia, is a businessman from South Africa and Secretary-General of the Patriotic Alliance.
According to Comedy Central Africa however, he is the next SA famous-person to be roasted like a piece of flame grilled chicken.
Yes, I did just allude to the fact that this event is sponsored by Nando’s. Now you know.
What caught my eye, was not so much the roastee (I mean, Kenny does politics, he doesn’t need anyone else to make an arse out of him. That’s what his career is for). What’s gonna make this roast stand out, is the interesting panel of roasters:
You haven’t been insulted until you have been insulted by this outrageously hilarious comedian.
According to her website, she is a “Comedienne – Actress – Writer – Academic – Mother – Wife”. After this roast, she can add chef to her little list.
Afrikaans zefrapper, poet and prophet (yes, I do think he is all that) will no doubt bring in some Kommin Kaap to the mix. And by that I mean “Jou ma se p*es”.
Rian van Heerden
Controversial radio host and opinionist Rian will no doubt lend some shock value to the roast
The legendary songstress was banned from radio and TV in the late 80’s. Let’s see if she can turn the heat up so much so that they ban her again…
Ok, according to me this radio/presenter is a very nice person. Seriously. Now, having seen my share of roasts, I know that it is quite often the nice ones that surprise you… #BURN
Not sure if it will be him or his alter ego (Madame Gigi) doing the roasting. Either way, prepare for some bitch slaps flying…
Coz every roast needs a hottie. Haha.
Now here’s the clincher:
Your Roast Master is one of my personal favourite comedians, the inimitable Jimmy Carr.
Everything this man does, is quite simply brilliant. From his stand-up shows and quiz shows to public appearances and (I’m sure) doing mundane stuff like tying his shoes, Jimmy is a genius. So when one of the world’s “most offensive” comedians is your roast master, you can be sure that it will be one to remember.
