If you’ve watched and loved Comedy Central’s Roast, you can watch an almost similar homegrown version –Roast House premiering July 14th. No, the hashtag trending on twitter is not about a Nyama Choma joint. It’s a comedy show!

Ten Kenyan celebrities will be in the hot seat and sharing a stage with seventeen Kenyan comedians who will brutally roast them! 

 Roast House celebrates different public figures in Kenya through jokes and “take downs” performed by the group of comedians from Standup Collective. 

 The show comprises 10 episodes of 24 minutes each, where the comedians throw out good-natured jokes on different topics, themes and situations at the expense of the public figure or celebrity in the hot seat. 

From activist Boniface Mwangi to singer-actress Sainapei Tande, to politician, media personality and comedian Jalang’o, to Soul Generation artists Nviiri the Storyteller and Bensoul, to rapper Prezzo and hip hop group P-Unit, no one is safe here. The live recording was done at Number 7 Club at Koinange Street, Nairobi.

 Roast House is co-produced by Eugene Mbugua’s D&R Studios and Stand-Up Collective’s team of comedians.

Among the team of comedians who will be taking the stage to roast celebrities in Roast House include Ty Ngachira, host of NTV’s primetime show Too Much Information with Ty Ngachira, Amandeep Jagde, Justine Wanda, Ruth Nyambura, George Waweru, David Macharia, Maina Murumba, John Ribia, Eric Lu Savali, Bashir Yusuf, Emmanuel Kisiangani, Maina Munene, Stan Saleh, Jack Nanjero, Davy Kimanzi and Darren Collins.
