The Jive Cape Town Funny Festival kicked off on the 10th of July and runs until the 10th of August.

Jive Cape Town Funny Festival founder, producer and artistic director Eddy Cassar says that the first explosion of stand-up comedy was after 1994 when they felt free to talk and speak and tell people how they felt.

The Jive Cape Town Funny Festival has been the platform to offer comedians in the country the opportunity to show off their skills and express how they felt in a form of comedy.

“The festival has grown into an international event to a point that international artists are invited to share the stage and laugh with local artists,” he says.

Mario-Queen of the Circus, veteran comedic contortionist Captain Frodo from Norway and award-winning Edinburgh Fringe Festival comedy magician Paul Dabek are some of the international artists that will headline the 13th edition of the Jive Cape Town Funny Festival.
