Join Cape Town’s biggest stand-up comedy talent search!

Enter the Jive Funny Championship, showcase your comedic talents, and you could be performing on stage at the Jive Cape Town Funny Festival in 2024.

Over the years, the Funny Festival has discovered, developed and showcased new talent and now has created The Jive Funny Championship for the sole purpose of discovering young up-and-coming comedians from Cape Town and give them a chance to show off their funny alongside the star-studded cast. Just like last year, the project (an initiative of the City of Cape Town and sponsored by Jive and MTN) will be held at Canal Walk.
