About

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.
