BRINGING PEACE TO THE WORLD THROUGH LAUGHTER AND SMILES!

Laughter brings people closer, succeeding where diplomacy, democracy, and religion have failed. It is a universal language. This event highlights an alternative ambassador – the kind that brings diplomacy through a belly laugh.

Congratulations, to all 89 competitors from 56 countries around the world. You are making history by representing your country to promote world peace!

We encourage you to watch their comedy and share their performances with your friends and family. Just imagine this possibility – of seeing comedians from all cultures of the world coming together to make people laugh and enlightening each other on the differences and similarities between all cultures and peoples. At this time, we cannot stress enough the value of a smile.

To assure fairness, voting will be overseen by an independent company, Indi.com, with no affiliation to the Laugh Factory.
