Local comedian Casper de Vries has taken to social media to explain why he was found "naked, bruised and bloodied" in the streets of Linden, in Gauteng, on Monday.

Sharing snaps of his bruised face, De Vries - who is also rocking a glammed up neck brace - revealed that it was a combination of sleeping pills and vodka that resulted in the embarrassing ordeal which he has no recollection of.

He wrote: "Never drink sleepingpills and then wash it down with clean SKYY vodka. @deepfriedman found me passed out naked in the streets of Linden, bruised and bloodied. Kent was missing. I think I wanted to take him for a walk. But he fucked off. I remember NOTHING. Even hurt my neck & am now wearing Montelle’s brace. Kent came back. Nursing bruises and scratches on my legs. Feel sorry please. And then you may laugh (sic)"
