Every year, over a hundred artists participates – many of the country’s most beloved and popular comedians, but also new talents and several international star comedians. Several places their premieres here, others are testing their material and some do specially made versions of their regular shows. Common to them all is that they keep coming back to the festival, not least because of the fantastic crowd who usually hangs out here.
