Bio

Mpho Popps (real name Mpho Modikoane) is a South African comedian who is best known to television viewers for being one of the celebrities to compete in the sixth season of the SABC3 reality competition Strictly Come Dancing, in 2013.

Popps first got noticed on the SABC1 reality competition So You Think You're Funny! in 2009 before going on the club circuit in Johannesburg, where he quickly made a name for himself and shared the stage with some of the biggest names in comedy, including Trevor Noah and Marc Lottering.

He has subsequently appeared on Blacks Only, Mzansi Magic's Opening Guys and Laugh Out Loud and on the talk show Late Night with Kgomotso.

He also appeared in the miniseries Taxi Ride as Kumba, a man of many faces who is a loud person with a mischievous side.

Popps made his first appearance on DStv's Comedy Central channel in May 2012 in the first ever episode of Comedy Central Presents... Live @ Parkers, a gig which was headlined by John Vlismas.

He was also a commentator on the second season of the Vuzu show 10 Over 10, in 2013.

In 2014 he hosted the SABC1 reality competition cooking series Your Perfect Sishebo Show and returned to host the second season the following year.

In 2015, Mpho landed his first starring role in television, in the Mzansi Magic drama series aYeYe, a coming-of-age story set in the heart of Johannesburg's hottest urban neighbourhood which follows the lives, loves, heartache, fears and dreams of three friends.

He also appeared on the first season of the SABC2 comedy sketch and variety show The Bantu Hour.

In 2016 he was a competitor in an episode of the MTV Africa reality series Lip Sync Battle Africa and co-hosted the e.tv reality competition series So You Think You Can Spin, in which contestants compete to win the title of the country's best spinner.
