John Vlismas will be one of the next Roasters. (Gallo)
Roasters John Vlismas, Tumi Morake, Jack Parow, Rian van Heerden, PJ Powers, Dineo Ranaka, Somizi Mhlongo, and Khanyi Mbau are sharpening their claws for the upcoming comedy roast of Kenny Kunene.
Veteran Roaster and comedian Vlismas cut his teeth at the Comedy Central Roast of Steve Hofmeyr and is the only returning Roaster from 2012, where he succeeded in getting under Hofmeyr's skin so successfully that the "Baas van die Plaas" crooner tried to make him eat his words by cramming his speech into Vlismas' mouth.
To play your own part in the Roast, participate in the Comedy Central YouRoast competition and Roastmaster Jimmy Carr could be reading out your own caustic comments or lavish praise at the Roast.
Tweet your comments to Comedy Central @ComedyCentralAF using the hastag #RoastZA, or post your suggestions on the Comedy Central Facebook wall.
