Sifiso Laughs His Way To The Bank

Last night Durban comedian Sifiso Nene proved that he's not the only one who laughs at his jokes when he won the first season of SABC1's reality show So You Think You're Funny!

He walked away with the title of Mzansi's Funiniest, R100 000 and a 12-month contract in a David Kau show.

Beating out fellow finalists Thabang Manyelo, Tsietsi Matlakala and Mdu Mazibuko (who was brought back as a wildcard), Sifiso was consistent across the 13-episode competition and was never in an elimination round.

The Finale began with a showdown between the finalists - each of the four performed, Mdu and Thabang were eliminated after the first round and Tsietsi and Sifiso battled it out for the win.

Judge and show mentor David Kau says the judges are confident that they have found their man, “Besides being funny, I reckon he is ready for the big time” said Kau.

Now all Sifiso needs to do to keep bigging up the bucks is be funny all the time. No pressure!

Gaad, i have never been this excited over a win! This guy is funny but he must be careful of relying on 'gay' jokes too much. Everytime i think of his jokes, i think gay.

well done to the audience for making the right decision.......dont know why they brought back Mdu and Mthawelanga..arrgh!

The joke that flew over my head was the PURE MONATE AND 2010 IN TEN DAYS joke......what was that about?

I loved Thabang's taxi stopping joke though....

Is there a repeat guys i mssed it ..

04 Feb 2009 08:04

Who is Mthawelanga? Is he the guitar guy.

I must say though, putting the finale in 30mins made the show seem really unimportant to SABC 1(and i'm not complaining), coz with most of these things, the finale gets an hour...hehe
