The Johannesburg International Comedy Festival has announced its return for this year’s edition, scheduled to take place in March.
The festival will feature over 30 local, continental and international comedians taking over the Maslow Hotel in Sandton and the Theatre on The Square from Thursday, 24 March to Tuesday, 29 March.
This marks the festival’s debut showing in Sandton since its inception in 2015.
This year’s much-anticipated line-up includes the likes of Jason Goliath, Mpho Popps, Tats Nkonzo, Conrad Koch, Robby Collins, Suhayl Essa, Tracey-Lee Oliver, Isabella Jane, Loyiso Madinga, KG Mokgadi, Ndumiso Lindi, Thabiso Mhlongo, Kate Pinchuck, Chris Forrest, Bash with Tash, Rob van Vuuren and Carvin Goldstone – amongst others.
Continental acts confirmed thus far are African giants Salvado (Uganda), Q Dube (Zimbabwe), and Akau Jambo (Sudan) who are set to impress Johannesburg audiences with their unique Afrocentric style of comedy.
Amongst other exciting things, the comedy showcase will also involve panel discussions, podcasts, behind-the-scenes digital content, photo ops, and after-show drinks – all of which fans can partake in throughout the six-day laughter and entertaining experience.
The age restriction for all comedy shows is 18 years old.
