#SavannaOnFire Savanna Durban Summer Comedy Festival


Durban will see 32 South African comedians perform six shows for the second annual Savanna Durban Summer Comedy Festival from 14-17 December.

The lineup is made up of both local Durban comics (yes they exist – and they’re hilarious!) and some of the biggest names in comedy from around the country (as well as a few who left Durbs, but are coming back because it’s lekker by die see).

Expect the likes of Loyiso Gola, Marc Lottering, Joey Rasdien, John Vlismas, Deep Fried Man, Ndumiso Lindi, Robby Collins – as well as local funny-people Arnotte Payne, Aaron Mcilroy, Kelvin Stoffels, Jem Atkins, Neville Pillay, Kwanda Radebe and more.

Tickets start from R70 and in true festival style, there’s a show to suit everyone.
