If you think you are funny, you could win $100,000 USD
May 7, Oslo: “Laughter is a universal language,” said Laugh Factory founder Jamie Masada. He added, “In 2014, we saw comedians from all over the world come together and make people laugh. It was amazing and it brought a smile to my heart. These comedians enlightened the audiences and each other, and we saw how different each culture is and what was funny about those differences. We also saw just how similar we all are, and how we all love to laugh.”
Masada believes laughter will "bring people closer, succeeding where diplomacy, democracy, and religion have failed. After all, laughter is a universal language. This is a chance to highlight an alternative ambassador--the kind that brings diplomacy through a belly laugh.”
The Grand Prize winner will receive the Festival's Trophy and a check for 817,624 NOK. The two runners-up will receive awards of 81,762 NOK and 40,881 NOK and each of the 20 finalists will receive 8,176 NOK. Laugh Factory's portion of any profits will be donated to help combat children’s world hunger through Feed the Children.
