“The overwhelming response to our mini-festival property COVID Relief, staged late last year, served to confirm that Joburg is ready to embrace live comedy again and laugh the pandemic blues away (if only for a few nights). The comedy gods have blessed us with yet another mouth-watering lineup of local and foreign comedy talent to showcase in what will be our first festival showing in Sandton.
