The French-language comedy festival “Namur is a joke” is set to return for its second edition on 23-26 March. First founded by Belgian comedian and YouTuber GuiHome, the event brings comedians from around the country to the Walloon capital.
Some of the comedians expected to appear at this year’s comedy festival include Arnaud Tsamère, Véronique Gallo, and Pablo Andres. The event will also host up-and-coming talents from the Belgian comedy scene, including Serine Ayari and Nikoz.
Besides the laughs, the three-day event will also feature musical performances by artists including Brussels-native Pierre de Maere, French multidisciplinary artist Aloïse Sauvage and colourful new talent Julien Granel.

This year, the comedy event will grow in size and occupy three new venues across the city including the Théâtre de Namur, the Nave, and a large marquee on the Place d'Armes.
Last year’s event was described by its founder as a “frank success” with over 25 comedians taking part and 8,000 visitors in attendance.
Tickets for the event can be bought through "Namur is a Joke's" official website.
