Ladies and gentlemen – it’s our 25th anniversary, so save the date now as The Jive Cape Town Funny Festival returns for more laughs from Monday, 10 June – Sunday, 7 July 2024.

Who would have believed that 25 years later we would have still be going strong – even growing! Every year, almost eighteen thousand loyal followers fill the Baxter Theatre with hearty laughs and endorphins that keep us going for the next 365 days.

Huge international names have graced the Funny Festival stage, including Trevor Noah, Jimmy Carr, Lee Mac, Adam Hill, Russell Peters, Marc Lottering, Riaad Moosa, Nik Rabinowitz, Kev Orkian, Paul Zerdin, Tape Face and many, many others.

During this time, we created a development programme, The Jive Funny Championship, where we find new comics and present them to you. It’s grown into a major event at Canal Walk and we have been able to attract hundreds of aspirant “open-micers” to show us their talent.

So, we invite you to come share your anniversary with ours. If it’s your birthday, wedding anniversary or any other reason to celebrate, get your family and friends and enjoy a good time together. We have generous discounts for group bookings.

We promise it’s a great night out for the entire family, even granny. If ouma is a little deaf, don’t worry, we’ll turn up the volume!

So check out Webtickets and book your seats early because this year we will sell out fast and we can’t add any extra shows. You snooze, you lose. Moenie kom huil nie, or come looking for comps… book your tickets today!
