Commented Fresh: “As someone that not only loves Comedy Central Roasts, but actually owns copies of all of them to date, it’s quite surreal to be a panellist for the Comedy Central Roast of Somizi. GAYm ON, Dzoll!!!”

From small screen beginnings in the soapie Isibiya to BET A-list co-presenter, there is no doubt Nomzamo has become a household name in the past few years. She has presented, hosted and acted in several big local productions, including a riveting drama Umlilo, which means to fire. Nomzamo’s experience in bringing the fire to any performance will stand her in good stead.


“My feeling about being part of the Comedy Central Roast of Somizi is obvious… I hope I can be funny and cheeky without trying too hard because I think throwing shade is a skill and an art. My main worry about Somizi is: how do you even begin to shade someone who’s a master of self-shading and lives his life publicly?” said Nomzamo.
