Yoh, yoh, yoh!!! This one is brutal.

Have you seen the Comedy Central Roast of Kenny Kunene? The Sushi King himself was willing to be verbally burnt at the stake by one of the most wickedly ruthless comics in the world – Jimmy Carr from the UK. But before Jimmy got to Kenny, he warmed up by destroying some of Mzansi’s biggest celebrities like Somizi, Jack Parow, PJ Powers and more. This you gotta see!
