Call it madness but's game show Madhouse, which kicks-off tonight at 8pm, challenges your creativity.

Madhouse is a light-hearted programme that takes the mickey out of people so that fun can be had by all.

This is a game show in which viewers have the chance to send SMSes and from these contestants are selected.

Contestants watch a pre-recorded clip and then answer a few questions live. For example, contestants have to guess how long it will take for a street participant to complete a wacky challenge.

The first contestant to guess the correct answer wins an instant cash prize of R2000 to R3000, depending on the challenge.

Each week there is a different challenge and street challenges include, for example, someone eating hot dogs in one minute while wearing boxing gloves.

At the end of each month there will be a joke competition in which four contestants will get to tell their funniest joke.

There's also a brand new car to win, as well as R100000 in prizes.

The show is presented by the whacky Nobuntu Dubazana, who was born in Pietermaritzburg in 1985. Madhouse is Dubazana's TV breakthrough as a presenter.
