I was based in Durban and like everyone else, I saw a television advert talking about a new show that's looking for an up-and-coming South African comedian says Nene.
I was doing comedy at that time but on a small scale adds Nene.
He says that when the opportunity to be part of 'So You Think You're Funny' came by, he wanted to try it out to see how far it goes.
I was quiet at school and observant. I didn't know I was a comedian even back then because your job as a comedian is to be observant, so you can learn and incorporate that into your comedy.— Sifiso Nene, stand-up comedian, MC and presenter
