For the love of laughter

Back with a bang! The Johannesburg International Comedy Festival (JICF) returns with yet another mouth-watering feast of comedy taking place over six hilariously jam-packed days.

Having just showcased its mini-festival brand, Covid Relief in October last year, this year’s JICF festival promises to be one of the most exciting celebrations of comedy on the continent for 2022!

Proudly brought to you in partnership with SABC2 and in association with the Department of Arts & Culture, JICF is set to deliver some desperately needed laughs this year, offering some much needed comedic relief during yet another pandemic year.
