Ridiculousness Africa Debuts

Insane antics, crazy stunts and life-threatening feats of senseless folly are all part of the scenery in Ridiculousness Africa, the new comedy video clip show that will have you gasping into your evening cocoa (MTV, DStv channel 130).

Hosted by small-but-perfectly-formed Safta-winning actor, comedian and TV host Thomas Gumede, Ridiculousness Africa hunts the length and breadth of the internet on your behalf seeking out the weirdest, the whackiest, and uncontestably the most stupid stunts ever committed to video.  So, if you love to watch people doing strange, unusual and frankly idiotic things in boats, cars, bikes, pools, on trampolines and more, then this is the show for you.

Gumede will be joined by co-hosts, co-conspirators Boity Thulo and Nigerian comic genius Basketmouth as they laugh, shriek, hide behind the sofa, and generally dissect the jaw-dropping exploits of irrational peeps who just can’t control the urge to do something incredibly stupid in front of a camera.

Bearing the warning “don’t try this at home” Ridiculousness Africa is the home-grown version of Ridiculounsess, MTV’s long-running video clip show hosted by Rob DyrdekThe series is taped on location in Spain. Check out the behind the scenes action below and don’t miss the show when it makes its debut on our screens for the first time in Africa, 14 July at 9.15pm on MTV (130)!
