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.
VOTING IS OPEN
Congratulations to all the nominees! We’ll see you at the awards event on 13 April the Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City, Johannesburg.
Of the 12 award categories, 4 go out for the public to vote on to decide who wins.
Vote for your favourite nominee and win a VIP experience to the awards*.
You can vote up to 20 times online and 20 times via SMS, per category, so show some love for your favourite.
Prizes will only be allocated to those who are 18 years or older.
VOTING CLOSES ON 31 MARCH 2024.
