Thomas Gumede joins MTV’s ‘Ridiculousness Africa’ as new co-host!


Thomas Gumede has been named the co-host of the MTV’s  brand new comedy video clip show Ridiculousness Africa!

The 30-year-old SAFTA award-winning actor, comedian and television personality will host the show alongside television personality Boity Thulo and Nigerian comic genius Basketmouth. The show will begin airing in July.

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.

“I’m Ridiculousness’s 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 tea” says Thomas.

FYI: Ridiculousness Africa airs weekly on MTV (DStv channel 130) from July 2016.

congrats to Matt on the big accomplishment!
