SABC 3’s new witty late night talk show
Johannesburg, 03 July 2017

South Africa’s newest late night live talk show, #WTFTUMI - hosted by comedienne and actress Tumi Morake - is set to make waves when it premieres on SABC3 on Wednesday, 5 July at 21h30. #WTFTUMI, a tongue-in-cheek, late night show produced by Urban Brew Studios, will see some of South Africa’s hottest celebs and influencers feature as studio guests.

Every Wednesday and Thursday evening, #WTFTUMI will tap into the pulse of the nation when Tumi looks at what has recently got South Africans talking. She will also get her invited guests talking about the lighter side of their lives, with a bit of snooping and through exciting interactive games.

Each episode, two or threeA-listers, ranging from celebs to sports stars and politicians, will open up to Tumi while in the #WTFTUMI lounge, bar or jacuzzi.  They’ll take part in different impromptu games that will ultimately reveal little known facts about them. Tumi might dare to invade the celebrity guest’s privacy and ask them to explain three things; like three items from their handbag or their three latest Twitter direct messages. She could also give the celeb guest the opportunity to respond to as many social media messages – hateful or loving – in 60 seconds.

#WTFTUMI will also see Tumi engaging with the studio audience and share a bit of banter with her barman. Each episode will end with a performance, either by a well-known music artist or comedian.

Tumi, who continues to be a formidable force in the entertainment industry, says, “I am always excited to try something new.  This show is raw and unapologetic, especially since it is a late night slot, I can afford to be naughty because the kids have already gone off to bed.”

Head of Unscripted Productions at Urban Brew Studios Adelaide Joshua-Hill adds, “We are looking forward to venturing into this new project with Tumi. There are so many creative things planned and we just can’t wait to share them with the viewers. All we can say is #WTF. ”

True to its tongue in cheek nature, the show’s name, #WTFTUMI, will see a play on the acronym WTF.  The WTF will lend itself to mean something different in each episode, from ‘Why The Fuss’ to ‘Where’s The Friday’.

Don’t miss #WTFTUMI every Wednesday and Thursday at 21h30 on SABC 3.
