The general public first noticed Mpho Popps Modidoane, when he entered a local television show – So You Think You’re Funny. After that launch pad, he quickly made a name for himself, sharing the stage with some of the big hitters, including Trevor Noah and Marc Lottering. Now, he launches his much-awaited one man Comedy show - "Exhibit A". This brilliant established comic will charm your cheek muscles into submission with social observation, high-energy imitations and hilariously private accounts of a born-free running free in our nation.
Mpho “Popps” Modikoane first came to national attention as a contestant who made it to the final of the 2009 local hit reality show, So You Think You’re Funny. After this initial exposure he became a regular on the Johannesburg comedy club circuit, sharing the stage with the likes of Trevor Noah and Marc Lottering.
This was followed by a spot on the line-up for David Kau’s national comedy tour: Blacks Only (2009, 2010, 2012, 2013), where his performances were invariably lauded with standing ovations. Other shows Mpho has performed in as a comic include: Just Because Comedy Festival at the Market Theatre (2009), a twelve week/forty-four show run at Gold Reef City’s Loads of Laughs (2011 – 2012), Bafunny Bafunny (2012), Mass Hysteria as the Minister of Youth (2013) and headlining The Comic's Choice Awards™ Showcase (2013).
