Khanyisa Bunu is an award winning comedian originally from Whittlesea in the Eastern Cape, currently residing in Johannesburg.
She studied BA Ed at Vista University (Bloemfontein Campus) and taught English and Geography for about 10 years at schools around Whittlesea area.
When she resigned from teaching in 2008 she was not clear what her next step was, so she tried comedy since her colleagues at school were always telling her that she was funny.
She auditioned for a reality show called ‘So you think you’re funny’ which was aired on SABC1 in 2009. She ended up being in the top 6 on that show!
She recently opened for Trevor Noah on his 2017 tour to Johannesburg. And the rest, as they say, is history!
