Description

#Karektas is a South African comedy variety television series hosted by Desmond Dube in front of a studio audience in which each week six resident comedians - known as Karektas - compete in teams to win bragging rights.

Each episode begins with Desmond performing an opening monologue as a character called Mama D, before he introduces the team captains, team members and guest celebrities for that week.

The contestants are grouped into two teams, paired with a celebrity guest, as they go head-to-head in five challenges. The five challenges featured in the show are:

Di Karektas

A comedy sketch challenge.

Hidden Cameras

Each team goes out to record tricks they play on unsuspecting citizens.

Dlala Ngengoma

Teams come up with impromptu songs with different themes.

The Roast

Team members get an opportunity to make fun of the other team's guest celebrity.

Mawaza News

An improvisation-based game where team members must quickly come up with a news report based on random pictures chosen by the opposing team.

After each challenge, Desmond prompts the studio audience to vote for the team they believe was funnier. The winning team is then named the Karektas of the week.

#Karektas is executive produced by Thabo Pitso, Desmond Dube, Andrew Timm and Phuthi Nakene for ATTV. Nomusa Nzima is a producer. The head writers are Desmond Dube and Lara Cunha, with a writing team including Monique Nortjie, Josias Moleele, Tendani Rikhotso, Tshepo Mokoena and Jonas Lekganyane.
