Comedian Basketmouth is set to become a co-host on the set of an all new MTV Base comedy video clip series “Ridiculousness Africa.”
Characterised by insane antics, crazy stunts and life-threatening feats of senselessness, the show airs weekly on MTV Base, DStv channel 322.
Hosted by the comedian alongside two South African co-hosts Thomas Gumede and Boity Thulo, “Ridiculousness Africa” hunts the Internet, seeking out the weirdest, wackiest and stupidest stunts ever committed to video.
“I’ve always been a huge fan of Ridiculousness, and I always dreamed of being a guest on the show, so it’s totally amazing to become one of the hosts. It just goes to show: dreams do come true,” Basketmouth said.
Also speaking about the show, co-host Thomas Gumede said;
“I’m Ridiculousness’ number one fan and I’ve literally been glued to the screen since the first episode, so when I got the call it was like a summons from on high! I feel like I’m getting paid to do what I normally do – which is watch internet clips with my friends, and my co-hosts make my job easier because Basketmouth is funny and Boity is beautiful. We’re the dream team”.
Bearing the warning “don’t try this at home” the show is the home-grown version of “Ridiculousness,” MTV’s long-running video clip show hosted by Rob Dyrdek.
The series is taped on location in Spain, with Gumede, Thulo and Basketmouth all currently in Madrid on location.
“Ridiculousness Africa” began airing weekly on MTV Base from July 2016.
