The infectious Sifiso Nene finished his run of Typical Zulu in Durban and Johannesburg this week.
He comes like a breath of fresh air - taking ordinary stories and making them extraordinary.
Nene has wanted nothing more in his life than making people laugh.
He won the first season of the David Kau production, SABC1's So You Think You Are Funny, in 2008.
But people fail to realise how he hustled before making it.
His journey started back in 2005.
He remembers attending events and begging the organisers to give him a shot.
"I used to travel from Durban in the morning to be in Johannesburg for a five-minute slot and catch a bus back after the gig," he said.
Some of the gigs would pay him while some would not.
