THE JIVE CAPE TOWN FUNNY FESTIVAL

Cape Town’s winter tonic, the 13th annual Jive Cape Town Funny Festival delivered by Turkish Airlines takes place at the Baxter Theatre from 10 July – 6 August 2017.

The Festival is strong on variety and speciality acts, whilst highlighting some of the top stand-up comedians in the country, resulting in an evening’s worth of world class entertainment and laughter.

The Funny Festival was founded by comedy entrepreneur and publicist Eddy Cassar, started from humble beginnings and has developed into an annual Winter Comedic Tonic for many Capetonians. Started way back in 1997, the Festival has developed into the largest of its type in the country and respected by performers as a “blue-chip” event.
