The Triple M Mammmas Kurk About AzaNya! is a sketch comedy show starring a troupe of four African ladies who use satire, parody and pastiche to hold up a critical mirror to society to reflect socio, political and economic issues faced by South Africans today. In this show, the "mammmas" are the founders of a local stokvel that caters at "mekete, manyalo le mafu" and offer a taste of their world acclaimed dish: "Nnete" (meaning truth)!

The Triple M Mammmas Kurk About AzaNya! is performed by the Thenx ladies Kitty Moepang, Tumy Motsoatsoe, MoMo Matsunyane, and Zethu Dlomo. Inspired by comedy gems like The Pure Monate Show, Late Night News with Loyiso Gola and The Catherine Tate Show these ladies will make you laugh and cry at the same time. Thenx hosted the 2015 Savannah Comic's Choice Awards and performed at the 2015 Tedx Johannesburg Conference: The State of the Nation in Four Part Harmony. Their play AzaNya is Five To! received an Ovation Award at the 2016 National Arts Festival.

Presented as part of POPUpstairs. Supported by the National Arts Council of South Africa.
