ShowTime has announced its new no-holds-barred comedy show, Ziwe, starring its namesake who poses uncomfortable conversations about controversial subject matters.
ShowTime released the official trailer of Ziwe on YouTube on Friday, 9 April 2021. The series, which premieres on Sunday, 9 May 2021, stars writer, comedian and performer, Ziwe, who brings her singular, riotously funny and inappropriate humour to the new variety show which aims to make fun of notably controversial topics and conversations.
ShowTime stated, “Ziwe is the riotously funny, new variety series from writer (Desus & Mero), comedian and internet sensation (Baited), Ziwe. A no-holds-barred mix of iconic musical numbers, interviews and sketches that challenge America’s discomfort with race, politics, and other cultural issues.”
Ziwe makes light of certain topics to desensitise and remove the power given to certain words and ideologies in a funny and digestible way. The show includes sit-down conversations, skits and performances from a variety of guests.
