Fresh, young gifted and humble. Not words one would associate with new talent in SA Comedy right now… Mpho shows enormous promise, with uncanny polish for his age, and brings a very current and unique viewpoint onto the big comedy playing field.

On the 27th of July 2009 Mpho Popps Modikoane entered a local television show entitled So you think you’re funny. That’s where the general public first noticed him. He then went on to the club circuit in Johannesburg. Quickly making a name for himself and sharing the stage with some of the big names in the industry, Trevor Noah and Marc Lottering, to name a few.
His next stop was Blacks Only with David Kau and Chris Forrest.
Mpho has now become a regular on the line up receiving a standing ovation on numerous occasions. After the success of Blacks Only, he went on to the Market Theatre for the Just Because Comedy Festival.
