The original Cape Town Comedy festival launched in 1996. It was the first international comedy event on the continent (first with Smirnoff and then Nando’s as the headline sponsors). It staged hundreds of international artists from around the globe and sold over a million tickets during its 16-year run. The Festival has a proud history of introducing the most prominent comedians to S.A., including, Jim Jeffries, Jimmy Carr, Russell Peters and Trevor Noah. It also catapulted the careers of many local acts.

The original Bafunny Bafunny tour, both locally and internationally, made not only comedy history but created comedy heroes with their sold-out performances in front of over 60,000 fans locally.
It was the first comedy showcase from South Africa to travel to the Royal Albert Hall in London.
