Cracking Up the Capital for Mental Health’s citywide comedy festival tickles funny bones in the name of philanthropy during its four days of events, which all benefit mental-health community organizations. The fest kicks off on Wednesday with Women of Comedy, featuring a trio of comediennes in an interactive evening of conversation. Little Mosque on the Prairie costars Deb McGrath and Sheila McCarthy join Canada’s 2012 Comedy Person of the Year Nikki Payne in a frank, hilarious discussion of their professional and personal lives. During Thursday’s Improv Games, Whose Line is It Anyway? star Colin Mochrie heads to Algonquin College to referee a competition in the style of his show, pitting Carleton University against the University of Ottawa.

Friday’s Aboriginal Comedy Evening features standup sets by some of the country’s funniest aboriginal comics, including Don Kelly, Dawn Dumont, and Ryan McMahon. Crackup Up the Capital ends on Saturday night with thunderous guffaws generated by an all-star lineup of standup comedians, including Big Daddy Tazz, Don Kelly, Tracey MacDonald, and John Wing take the stage.
