ABOUT

Funny, innovative, surprising and smart; Comedy Central, the world's only all-comedy network, launched on DStv channel 122 on 6 December 2011 at 19h30 and was available to DStv Premium subscribers.

Comedy Central Africa is a 24-hour channel which offers viewers groundbreaking comedy from the Comedy Central library. The channel includes global hit franchises such as South Park and The Daily Show and content from around the world as well as South Africa.

Comedy Central's provocative comedy content includes stand-up and sketch comedy, satire, offbeat comedy TV series, classic comedy sitcoms and comedy specials. The channel also contains a mixture of international comedy hits plus an ever-increasing amount of locally-produced content.

Comedy Central Africa debuted with a one hour stand-up special from US comedian and ventriloquist Jeff Dunham, followed by the African premiere of The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen.

Less than a year after launching, Comedy Central debuted the South African version of The Comedy Central Roast, an international format of one-off specials hosted by Comedy Central in which selected celebrities are "roasted" by a panel of their peers, who do their utmost to embarrass the roastee by directing jokes and comments at them that are as personal and cutting in nature as possible.

The first South African Roast was of Steve Hofmeyr and was held on 11 September, 2012, airing on Comedy Central on Monday 24 September 2012, at 21h00.

The second Roast - The Comedy Central Roast of Kenny Kunene - was staged in 2014 and saw "Sushi King", entrepreneur, reality TV star and politician Kenny Kunene roasted.
