The Johannesburg International Comedy Festival (JICF) presented by 947 returns to the City of Gold with a mouthwatering feast of world-class comedy over four consecutive days of side-splitting fun.
The biggest independent international comedy festival in Africa, JICF is rolling out its third edition with more than 40 local, continental and international comedians taking over the Nelson Mandela and the Fringe theatres at the Joburg Theatre in Braamfontein from Thursday, March 14, to Sunday, March 17.
Audiences are in for a mouthwatering treat, with international superstars such as the enigmatic Dane Baptiste from the UK; Britain’s Got Talent finalist Daliso Chaponda from Malawi; and the finest comedian performing in the United Arab Emirates, Ali Al Sayed, forming part of the first wave of internationals coming to our shores. More international acts will be revealed closer to the time.
Performing alongside our guest comedians will be some of Mzansi’s finest talents such as Loyiso Gola, John Vlismas, Tumi Morake, Conrad Koch and Chester Missing, Kagiso Lediga and Schalk Bezuidenhout.
In keeping with its commitment to providing a platform for young and exciting talent, JICF is proud to provide Tsitsi Chiumya, KG Mokgadi and Prins with their debut showings at the festival.
