Outrageous South African funnyman Sifiso Nene is headed to Carnival City’s Big Top Arena, and he is bringing his friends.
On November 3, he will be joined by the likes of Tumi Morake, Thenjiwe, Tumi Stopnonsense, Mpho Popps, Siya Seya, Salesman and others who will be armed and ready to fire their funniest jokes at fans in the Combo Comedy Show.
Nene has put together this lineup of vernacular comedy legends to ensure they fill up the Big Top Arena with hysterical laughter.
Initially from KZN, Nene has blown away Gauteng and other provinces with his vernac comedy. He also recently opened up the Comedy Basement in Braamfontein, a place where comedians are invited to share their jokes in all 11 official languages.
Despite humble beginnings in Empangeni in KwaZulu-Natal, Nene was announced the first-ever winner of reality competition So You Think You’re Funny. Since then he has kept his winning streak alive.
He not only won an award at the Satmas for the Best Indigenous Comedian but has for two years in a row won the Comics Choice Award which is voted for by the audience.
Shy in character, Nene is a man of few words, until he’s up on stage that is. There is no doubt Nene is a comedy professional, and because he knows the industry so well, he has added the best comedians in SA to join him on stage.
Vernacular Pretoria-based comedy sensation, Salesman wa Motokwa for instance, is a multi-award winning funnyman who has won the Comic of the Year award last year and is showing no signs of slowing down.
Tickets cost between R200 and R300 per person. Doors open at 6pm and the two-hour show starts at 8pm.
