AFRICAN COMEDY FESTIVAL (ACF)
Over the last decade, Comedy and cultural entertainment has developed to become a centre of attraction to millions around Africa and other parts of the world. The strength of comedy as an arm of entertainment in communal living and as a desk of unity cannot be over emphasised.
Comedy does defiles language, colour, religion, race and all elements of diversity, thereby creating a free platform where people of different religion, language and race come together to have fun and network.
With the increasing African community in Qatar, there is need to create a platform for Africans and foreign lovers of African comedy resident in Qatar to have fun in the African way. Creating an atmosphere of humour for all and most importantly, ensuring a platform for Africans and non-Africans to unite, network and show the beauty of peace and togetherness which Qatar represent.
ORYX GROUP in Partnership with RUBY EVENTS Qatar will organise the 2020 Africa Comedy Festival. An event dedicated to Africans and non-Africans, to promote the African identity and to improve African cultural and entertainment interactions in Qatar.
This is a new innovation as nothing of such has been held in Qatar. Africans in Qatar will have an unforgettable experience with a feel of humours from some of the best of African comedians.
