"The Lite Show
is a wrap up of weekly news headlines with a comic spin and its purpose is to give South Africans an opportunity to be in the know, while enjoying a good laugh," says Goliath.
"Each of the cast members bring in something different to the show ensuring that they deliver well-packaged content for South Africans to enjoy. We wanted to give consumers an opportunity to always stay on top of the news without any clutter or negativity," adds Goliath.
