Some of these comedians will also be performing at an international comedy festival in Johannesburg in November. (See details below.)

Also remember that the Johannesburg International Comedy Festival takes place 6-8 November 2015.
Forty-two comedians are scheduled to take part in what is considered to be one of the biggest gatherings of comedy talent ever assembled on the continent!
The festival will feature local, continental and international talent performing at the Alexander Theatre, Orbit Jazz Café, Thirteen and the Bannister Hotel in Braamfontein as well as The Market Theatre and Bassline in the Newtown precinct. There will also be fringe shows at popular Braamfontein venues.
