Siv Ngesi embarked on a fast several days ago and it’s showing him flames!

The comedian said that he started the fast for his own “spiritual” reasons and through a series of Instagram videos he opened up about his battles with it.

He said the hardest part was adapting to a life without swearing and sex.

“The hardest part of fasting is the no sex‚ the no swearing and to try to have just pure thoughts because you know that I love an F-word‚” Siv said.

He said that it was an uphill battle to keep his thoughts clean and suggested he would have dropped enough f-bombs to send everyone running for the hills.

“I had quite a hard week and if I wasn’t fasting I would have had many f-bombs to throw and this would have been a Siv rant‚” he said.
