Cape Town to get their Laughing Game On!

Following the wild success of the inaugural first year, the mother of all comedy festivals, the Mother City Comedy Festival returns by popular demand to the Baxter Studio Theatre from 11 to 29 February.

With more than 45 comedians performing in 40 shows over three weeks, it’s even bigger and better than ever!

Produced by SIV NGESI, in collaboration with Taylor Made Productions, the Mother City Comedy Festival celebrates stand-up comedy in all its forms, presenting a full spectrum of different comedic styles.

Comedy-lovers are spoilt for choice during this fabulous festival of funniness.

They producers said that they had such a phenomenal response to the first Festival, that they had to make the program longer this year around.: “The Festival proved to be not only a great event for comedy connoisseurs to get their fix, but also a key platform for newer stars to have the opportunity to perform at a major Cape Town venue.”
