Now in its 11th year, The Savanna Comics’ Choice Comedy Awards celebrates SA’s best comedians.

It’s called ‘Comics’ Choice’, because comedians vote for comedians – they review the entries and choose who gets nominated.

Four of the 12 categories go out for public voting once the nominees are announced in February 2024.

The awards? Think of them as the Oscars, but for those brave souls who chose punchlines over poignant pauses. Established to benefit the comedy industry, the awards give recognition to those who choose comedy as their career, and ensure that SA’s comedy scene is recognised as globally competitive, healthy and thriving.

We bring the entire industry together to celebrate their peers and we want everyone else to celebrate them too.

Who can enter

These 12, highly regarded accolades are exclusively
awarded for exceptional comedy.

Most of the categories are for seasoned stand-up
professionals, but there are a couple of categories
for comedic digital content too.

You’ll need to be 18 years or older to enter.

Sponsors and Partners

The awards are brought to you by One-eyed Jack, a marketing and communications agency. The awards are impartial and reputable. Feedback gathered from the industry has been incorporated wherever possible.
