The Great Plains Comedy Festival
- What it is: a weeklong comedy extravaganza focusing on Saskatoon's homegrown cadre of comics
- Who's heading it up: Dez Reed, who made his name touring 17 countries on four continents and opening for George W. Bush on his book tour before heading back home to spearhead a Saskatoon comedy renaissance
- Where it will be: bars and venues throughout Saskatoon
- Myles Morrison (June 9 and 13), whose good-natured skewering of Saskatoon culture has landed him gigs performing for NATO troops overseas and on CBC's Laugh Out Loud
- Kelly Taylor (June 11 and 13), who placed second at the Just for Laughs Homegrown competition and has opened for comics such as Rich Hall and Blake Clark
- Mike Dambra (June 9, 12, 13, and 14), whose politically incorrect sets have opened for such acts as Rosie O'Donnell and Adam Sandler
