He is one of SA’s most celebrated comedians and this November, Sifiso Nene is set to dazzle audiences in Johannesburg with the latest funny showcase, BABY MAMA DRAMA 2, which is guaranteed to deliver the comedy punches.

The Kwazulu-Natal-born stand-up comedian, actor, and MC, is set to charm Gauteng comedy audiences at Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City on Saturday 27 November 2021, with his infectious humour and relatable jokes.

As the title suggests, Nene will have no choice but to make fun of anything. So if you are in the mood for a good laugh, this is the show for you.
As if the Covid pandemic is not bad enough Nene still finds himself yet in another pandemic in the form of BABY MAMA DRAMA 2.

“I was not planning to do PART 2 of this show because I thought I had gone through all the possible BABY MAMA DRAMA on my first show six years ago. It turns out that I was very wrong. It got worse during the Covid-19 pandemic. Just the thought of it makes me want to cry. That’s why I have decided to vent in the best way I know how, on stage,” he shares.

Nene is no stranger to the comedy industry. He launched his career in 2009 when he won the first season of So You Think You Are Funny – which was a nationwide talent search for up-and-coming comedians on SABC1.

Since then, Nene has kept his winning streak alive, after winning the Comics Choice Awards in 2012 and 2013, in the Audience Choice category.

As the comedian’s latest comedy show title suggests, BABY MAMA DRAMA 2 puts a humorous twist to this somewhat well-known but seldom-addressed problem that most people have found themselves.

“Audiences are in for a treat and should expect to hear jokes delving into taxi drivers, politics, and much more. So whether you are someone who has baby mama drama, are dating someone who has baby mama drama, or are in fact the baby mama who has drama yourself, this show will have everyone in stitches,” says Nene.

Tickets for this spectacular comedy experience can be purchased via Computicket at either or via Checkers and Shoprite retail stores, countrywide, from R200-R240 each.
