Are you Africa’s next top comedian? The Africa No Filter Comedy Lab 2023 is looking for talented African comedians to develop fresh and unfiltered content about Africa. They are looking for funny, unique content that changes how the world sees your community, country or the continent.

Skits created through the ANF Comedy Lab will also have a digital showcase. To get a chance at this opportunity, you need to create one comedy skit that’s between 45 seconds and one minute long and post it on your Facebook page, Instagram or Tik Tok. The skit should carry a powerful storyline that positively portrays an African country or Africa or challenge pre-existing African stereotypical narratives in a funny, ground-breaking and engaging way.
