Over the past two months SABC1's comedy reality search So You're Think You're Funny has narrowed down the competition to a final six contestants.

The Finale's coming up on Tuesday 3 February and the pressure is on the finalists to out-funny each other in the remaining episodes to win the R100 000 prize.

The final six are (in no particular order): Tsietsi Matlakala of Witbank, Mdu Mazibuko of Johannesburg, Khanyisa Bunu of East London, Isaac Sithole of Johannesburg, Thabang Manyelo of Polokwane and Sifiso Nene of Durban.

This coming Tuesday (20 January) two of the six will be outwitted and eliminated and the following Tuesday (27 January) one will be whacked, leaving a final three for the showdown.

In addition to the cash prize the winner will also star in a David Kau show for 12 months. Kau's been a mentor on the show and is also one of the judges. Completing the final panel are comedian Ntosh Madlingozi and actress Moshidi Motshegwa.

The show is on SABC1 on Tuesdays at 19h00.

I LOVE KHANYISA'S PRESENCE. Just the sight of her alone makes me crack up! i also love that guy with sparse dreads on his head- not sure what his name is.

i am so glad that guitar boy is gone! He wasn't funny shame, he was mildy witty but so not funny.

If only there were pictures, i'd know who the guy i'm rooting for is!

Sfiso is going to take it...he is too funny...i've been to a few of his shows here in durbz and he always delivers...

Mthwelanga entered the wrong competition coz the brother aint funny but he surely can sing...hes creative, has the voice, the look and hes educated...that's a recipe for success right there...hope ama music executives were watching...

Y don't they do like stand up comedy where people are voted off each week.These sketches and other crap are tedious (I've only ever watched less than 10min of this show but I got the gist and I didn't like it)

I watched it on Tues & was impressed ke Sfiso & Mdu. I also like Khanyi, but my money is on Sfiso!!

Shame  it was said seeing the guitar man go, but with a talent like that i'm sure we are going to spot him somewhere, doing his thing, clearly comedy was not it.

As for the presenter(4got his name), u have grown with this show, i remember in the first few episode we were all complaining about u, big up 2 u boet & keep it up!!

Guys can anybody  tell me how is Ntosh as a comedian.  Must admit it was my first time seeing him on this show, i didn't know of his existence.  Is he gud, coz he's pretty much giving these aspiring comedians a hard time. Just wondering nje hore yena o gud ho le hokae?

I also saw him on Kgomotso. He's wack period! That's why Tladi wanted to BEAT HIM UP!  For a person who's that harsh he should be funny!

Oh my goodness! the show is so under budget it's not even funny and i am just praying that the contestants are not starving and drowning in Fanta. i would like to say the Eastern Cape guys you have my support but Sifiso i have hope that you are going home R100 000 richer.

Kakapana
16 Jan 2009 14:28

its funny how they never show us where the contestants (thomas, the presents irritates me when he says this word) sleep or where they eat and chillax....they are always sitting at that dingy hall or whatever it is and they're always carying their bags....
tjoe!!! they arent even chairs or some runned-down sofas for them to sit on. when they're writing their material they have to lie down on the floor or kneel down.....cha cha cha surely as a coca-cola product, Fanta could afford a few basic things like chairs....noma lezi ezamaplastici....

uSIFISO for the money, even when he walks in, I just laugh, deserves it, I say if not him then Thabang, otherwise this show was just boring, as for uNTOSH, never heard of him, dont like him, if he was one of the contestants, he would have been the first to leave, with his and Moshidi's YOU KNOCKED IT OUT THE PARK statement, bayabhora.

I saw him at one of the Blacks Only Comedy shows...and he uses foul language a lot. Based on that perfomance, I'd give him a 6/10 rating.

the guitar guy is Mthawelanga, he was in IDOLS in 2005 and was eliminated ib the top 8. i am sure he was rooting for some music producer to spot him

lil something
17 Jan 2009 23:47

This is a  gr8t show even though it lacks somethin', however raw talent was spotted in this show en i think many event organisers saw wht talent South Africa really has in terms of comedy. The guitar guy was not all so good 4 me, it was a mistake that he went that far, I am sure uyagabha...lol.. Anyway I think the guy 4rm Durbs, uSifiso will nail it, he rocks!

DJ Why why
20 Jan 2009 05:21

@ zo , i thot he luked familiar wif his guitar...mmmmm.

LOL @ the close up pix....... I suppose it's between Fiso n Tsietsi 4 me...Tsietsi was creative last week, Fiso delivers but he is too neat in his perfomances... I loved his Sowetan galfrend joke....

And abhuti wa" overall Isaac...mina i loved him on the hijack sketchyakudala  manje he speaks too much sotho, tswana ......

At this point i wud pay to see Fiso .........n Tsietsi....so it's Fiso for the Mani! I wanted to laugh at Thabang's joke about Vendian wars maara i got lost....mid-joke the language.....

kwa kwa kwa, BA ur sista is so right uNtosh is a real comedy in that ad, the thing is uzithwele, he thinks he's all that. Neway as for that ringtone..........eish.........it makes me hate the ad even more. But ke Nandos has always made it clear that theyare proud supporters of Zuma and the ANC. Ever noticed those two full chicken meals, they call them option A AND C *as in there is no B, so as to say ANC*.......and the ad is also in the ANC colours.........mxim!!!!

All in all, Ntosh failed 2 pull that advert...I think he also needs 2 audition for So you think you are funny 2...the thing I don't like abt him is that he is so shrewd even more the David Kau and he is a complete critic yet he failed doing a nice Nandos Advert...

DJ Why why
24 Jan 2009 06:55

Haaa u guys? I LOVE that advert, and the way he says....*noma----li ne*...he is the exaggerated BEE dude. I think he was a perfect casting! I am still enjoying it.......the part bout *legs n thighs* and zooming on the breasts...i thought that was brilliant on the creatives side.....there are so many things they did ryt... (...connected/cellphone/mshiniwam..)

I suppose i love the offish ads....like the "we ve been having it-voda, Smoof n not smoof tropika*

Back to the topic....nx i missed the show 3/4 of the show coz i thought almal was showing uncle Obza's day....

Thabang HAS reached his sell-by date. I dont understand why he choked (as Donald trump would say). He started off well with the xhosas and the click thing then he became a joke.

Big up to the guy who did the Zuma-mouth thingy...lol

yes it is Tox, Fiso did it....! Luv him....pity  missed Tsietsi...Tsietsi has the kasi vibe....

I still say Fistas is too clean but yes i wud pay to see him...but there is something cold about his deliverence, maybe it's tone of his voice...i do nt know.

Toxic
28 Jan 2009 18:40

LOL DJ! I like him cause he is sooo original. i'll never forget his stabane joke....

somizi is to blame for all this nonsense. even dogs want to be gay. his pet dog was loungin on the pavement and he tried to play fetch (i think) and the dog said, you can go and fetch it yourself, now i'm a hotdog.

I never really warmed to Mdu but his 4 minutes is too long statement cracked me up.

who's the guy that was going on about horses and lambo's in Lesotho? i was sooooo bored during his set shame.
