The Asia International Comedy Festival (AICF) is not just for laughs. The festival holds a deeper message to promote diversity, acceptance when differences among people are being challenged in the world we are in today.

With the two major players in the media streaming market, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video introducing comedy to their line-up of online streaming entertainment, came a rising tide for comedy in Asia, and a demand for Asian comedians with Asian content. The Asia International Comedy Festival is a platform to curate and feature the up and coming comic talents.
