Why the need for this festival? A lot of big cities in the world have their own comedy festival. In Flanders that is not yet the case and we would like to change that. The focus is on international comedy, but you can also see Flemish and Dutch stand-up comedians. The Flemish people are ready to go to comedy events in English. A lot of Flemish people can understand English and have already discovered comedy in English via YouTube and television. There are also people with different nationalities who live here or who spend their holiday in Flanders and speak English as a second or third language. A lot of them also really like comedy, so they will be very excited to hear about this. Jimmy Carr Jimmy Carr, one of the most original and distinctive stars of television, radio and the stage, is bringing his show to Belgium for the first time.

Some clever, some rude & a few totally unacceptable.Everybody’s welcome. Just leave your conscience, sense of common decency & moral compass at home & come out for a laugh".
