10 top celebrities roasted for their flaws by comedians

Roast House, the first comedy TV show of its kind in Kenya, has finally come to an end with all 10 episodes.

The comedy show, which premiered in July 2022, features a team of comedians from Stand-Up Collective armed with brutal and hilarious roasts aimed at a different celebrity in each episode.

There have been the roasts of Boniface Mwangi, Sanaipei Tande, Kagwe Mungai, Nviiri, Nameless, Bensoul, Avril, Prezzo, P-Unit and Jua Cali.

Recorded live at Number 7 Club on Koinange Street, Nairobi, Roast House is co-produced by Eugene Mbugua’s D&R Studios (behind Sol Family, Kyalo Kulture, This Love and The Real Housewives of Nairobi coming to Showmax in 2023).

The Stand-Up Collective’s team of comedians that includes Doug Mutai; Ty Ngachira, host of NTV’s primetime show Too Much Information with Ty Ngachira; Amandeep Jagde, and Justine Wanda.

The tenth and final episode was marked by filmmaker and actor Abel Mutua.

As he marks the end of the show in style, the filmmaker touched on all aspects of his life from his marriage to parenting skills to his filmmaking career to his famous YouTube series ‘Young and Stupid.’

“Tugi and Abel have a lot in common; they both rely on Njugush for their survival,” comedian Ciku Waithaka dishes, referring to Abel’s successful collaboration with comedian Njugush.

“Abel quit drinking but he didn’t let that get in the way of telling incoherent stories,” George Waweru takes a swing at Abel’s scriptwriting skills.

The actor was a writer on shows like Mother-In-Law and Machachari before co-founding his own production house, Philit Productions, with his friend and Tahidi High co-star Philip Karanja.

The duo has since churned out titles like Sue na Jonnie, Ma’Empress, A Grand Little Lie and Click Click Bang.
