Meet Sifiso Nene

Sifiso Nene is a South African comedian and actor best known for winning the first season of the SABC1 reality competition talent search So You Think You’re Funny!, in 2009.

Originaly from Durban, he moved to Johannesburg in 2006 with the intention of being a scriptwriter for the comedy show Pure Monate Show. He was told that his writing was better suited to stand-up comedy so he embarked on a career in stand-up. In 2008 he entered the David Kau reality competition show So You Think You’re Funny! and after a 13-week process was voted as the winner, taking home prize money of R100,000. His win on the show led to greater exposure for Sifiso and he landed a slot on Opening Guys, a reality show on Mzansi Magic hosted by Kagiso Lediga, in 2010.

In 2012 he won the Audience Choice Award at the 2nd Annual South African Comics Choice Awards, which is voted for by the public. Also in 2012, he joined the SABC1 youth talk show Mzansi Insider as a contributor and also starred in the David Kau film Taxi Ride as Bhakabhaka, a rude, funny and stubborn taxi driver who always carries a sjambok and is the best friend of Dlamini (played by Skhumba Hlophe). He reprised this role in the spin-off television series which aired on Mzansi Magic and Mzansi Wethu in 2013.
