On Monday 29 August at 21:00 CAT, we feature Suzelle’s DIY “Viewer’s Choice Top 10” shows. Among the bizarre DIY tips Suzelle has shared with her fans are “How to Iron without an Iron”, “How to Make a Braai Pie”, “How to Make a Christmas Tree”, “How to Get Fluff Off Your Jersey”, and “How to Make a Loadshedding Survival Kit”. A slew of Suzelle DIY shows will air in the lead up to the Top 10 show during August starting with double bill episodes every Monday to Friday at 20:05 CAT from 1-12 August, and 10 back-to-back episodes over the first two weekends of August.Legendary sketch comedy show, SNL, which airs every Saturday at 21:05 CAT, will feature some of the best female talent – from “Trainwreck” actress and comedian Amy Schumer (6 August) to former child star-turned pop diva Ariana Grande (13 August), best friends and comedy actresses Tina Fey and Amy Poehler (20 August), and quirky “Spy” heroine Melissa McCarthy (27 August).
