The programme of Days of Comedy is chosen by a selector and includes both a competition and a side programme. Performances in the competition programme compete for Gracious Comedy Awards in four sections, namely, for gracious comedy performance, gracious comedy director, and two gracious actors (male and female), all of which are granted by the expert jury. The festival also awards the Gracious Comedy Feather Award for best original Slovene comedy text. This award is granted biannually and is selected by the jury, appointed by the Slovene People’s Theatre (SLG) Celje. The festival also presents the Audience Award for best comedy.
