The African comedy Festival is part of the African Comedy Show which is a monthly event that has been consistently running for the past 8 years in London. The African Comedy Show features top African comedians to perform at the monthly comedy show at the renowned Hippodrum Auditorium in Golders Green, London UK. Since its inception, the African Comedy Show has become an enormously popular destination for hearing African comedy from around the world.
The African Comedy show has hosted top comedians such as world famous Comedy Central Daily Show host Trevor Noah, Andi Osho (BBC Live at the Apollo / Channel 4 comedy), Paul Shuddery (BBC Live at the Apollo / Channel 4 comedy) and many more. Celebrities such as heavy weight champion Anthony Joshua is a regular attendant at the monthly event. The vision for the event is also to enable the general public in the UK and the African community to get a taste of home by bringing the African style of comedy to their doorstep.

The line-up will include comedians: Tumi Morake (South Africa), Gordons (Nigeria), Eric Omondi (Kenya), DKB (Ghana), Meskerem Bekele (Ethiopia), Alex (Uganda), GH Wiilwall (Somalia), Long John (Zimbabwe), Brother Franklyn (Kenya) and guest comedians Prince Ezikah and MOG.
