About

Eddy Cassar is the producer of the Cape Town Funny Festival.  In 1997 he founded South Africa’s first live comedy project, the Smirnoff Comedy Festival. The Cape Town Funny Festival followed in 2005. Since inception, it has run to capacity each winter at the Baxter Theatre. Eddy has travelled to the Edinburgh Festival for the last nine years in search of fresh talent which he showcases on the Cape Town Funny Festival.

Eddy Cassar Public Relations founded the country’s first comedy festival way back in 1997. Over the years the project evolved into the Jive Cape Town Funny Festival, delivered by Turkish Airlines -  a month-long winter comedy variety show that runs at the Baxter Theatre.

In addition to showcasing the country’s great diversity and humour, the Funny Festival secures a range of speciality acts from around the world, giving the project its unique characteristic.

The Cape Town Funny Festival has numerous sponsors, namely Jive, Turkish Airlines, the City of Cape Town, the Cape Argus, Heart FM, the New Kings Hotel – Sea Point, and many more.

The performers are hand-picked by Funny Festival producer Eddy Cassar, and often recommended by previous performers themselves.

While in Cape Town, they also get to enjoy the very best that the Mother City has to offer, including special excursions thanks to our generous sponsors.  They arrive as performers, and leave as friends and ambassadors, and many performers return to the Jive Cape Town Funny Festival over the years. 

The Jive Cape Town Funny Festival, delivered by Turkish Airlines, is one of the City of Cape Town's Premier Events, and the only one held in winter.

  • Cape Town based comedian and Good Hope FM sports presenter, Dalin Oliver, gained his passion for the performing arts back in 2010 when he won the UCT leg of Good Hope FM’s Campus DJ Search. 
A few months later the comedy bug bit and the qualified high school Mathematics and History teacher ditched the chalk board for a microphone and the stage. 
The 28 year old captures audiences with his clean cut energetic brand of comedy. His skill set is broadening daily and was put to the test when he played one of the lead roles in his first feature film, Finders Keepers, set to release in cinemas nationwide in 2017. 
Catch Dalin at the #CTFunnyFestival at the Baxter Theatre in July! Tickets at Computicket.
