A roast is a comedy show in which a specific individual is subjected to jokes at their expense, intended to amuse the event's wider audience. Such shows are intended to honor a specific individual in a unique way. In addition to jokes and insults, roasts may also involve genuine praise and tributes. The individual is surrounded by friends, fans and well-wishers who can and will probably receive some of the same treatment during the course of the evening.
Eugene Mathews has always wanted a comedy roast and this year, for his 35th birthday celebration, he is finally receiving one!
Cape Town's favourite stand-up comedy host from Bloemfontein, Carl Anthony Weber, is on Roastmaster duties which is already a show itself.
The roasters are Lungelo Ndlovu, Chantal Jax Venter, Justin Ray, Stuart Cairns, Peter Sserwanga, Roché Kester, Eugene Vanacore & Yaaseen Barnes so you are guaranteed a whole lot of laughs throughout the show.
Tickets are limited, cost R50 each and will be available from the The Freedom Riders Mcc Cape Town.
As always there'll be a party after the show; next day's a public holiday after all! Do join us...
