PRAHAha is an international comedy festival organized by “Nadacni Fond Comedy in Prague“ a nonprofit trust in accordance with Czech Law.
Our mission is to provide a humorous, international, and multilingual cultural exchange where people from different countries, backgrounds & ages meet and connect through comedy.
We have over 50 comedians performing in 3 different languages (Czech, German, English) from 12 different countries!
PRAHAha began when three like-minded individuals attended a German-speaking comedy event in Prague. The event had a room of 150 people laughing for a continuous hour and a half – the effect this had on the co-founders was profound. Immediately following the show they started discussing potential ways of bringing more comedy into the world. After several hours of conversation, they agreed on establishing a non-profit to organize a comedy festival in their current home city of Prague, Czech Republic.
The goal of the festival would be to create a cultural exchange within three languages – English, German, and Czech. This exchange would bring comedians and comedy lovers (new and old) from all over the world together and provide a shared experience. The experience of laughter, something each co-founder thought the world did not have enough of.
Just a few short weeks later they had a cool name, had the organization registered under that cool name, and had assembled a small group of people to help them to make this dream a reality. They did research and got things done. A few months later they hired over 50 comedians, built a website, signed venue contracts, established a social media presence, and began everything that is needed to make the PRAHAha International Comedy Festival a success.
