Space Dot Comedy and Young In Prison

This month, Indie Comedie and at Joburg Theatre have decided to partner with Young in Prison to bring you a comedy show for the benefit of youth upliftment.

As part of the youth festival programme at, Joburg Theatre and celebration of Youth Day, Indie Comedie have decided to put together a stand up comedy show to assist Young in Prison, a charitable organisation that focuses on uplifting youth in conflict with law.
"Young in Prison South Africa (YiPSA) is a non-profit organisation that offers a holistic programme, which seeks to prepare children and youth in conflict with law in making the transition from incarceration back into society through imparting life skills for behaviour change, offering skills development for effective reintegration and reducing re-offending."  

"YiPSA uses a unique methodology of teaching life skills using creative and performing arts, sports and literacy. They offer services in correctional facilities, child and youth-care centres and communities in Cape Town and Johannesburg." - Young in Prison

We have put together a line up of amazing comedians who have devoted their time to assisting us in raising funds for Young in Prison.  So far 8 comics have signed up, with more to join the line up.  All profits will be donated to this charity.  Come laugh with us for a good cause!

Show is on Friday, 26 June at Joburg Theatre.
Show starts at 8pm.  Will we see you there?
