How does a country that has changed so much do comedy? Those wanting to find out and enjoy some laughs along the way can do so for nearly four weeks in June and July.
The Vodacom Funny Festival runs from June 10th to July 13th at the Baxter Theatre in Cape Town, featuring both talent from around South Africa and also an international cast of performers.
And the event will also be graced with the presence of one of the country's most famous sons as Archbishop emeritus Desmond Tutu will join performers on June 21st for a charity event, with proceeds towards the Desmond Tutu Peace Centre.
Some of the performances may be somewhat earthy and the event is not open to under-18s.
Cape Town has a wide range of other attractions for visitors throughout the year and as it is the local winter and not too hot, energetic visitors may wish to try climbing Table Mountain.
The highest point on the iconic peak is Maclear's Beacon at 3,569 ft above sea level.
