Vancouver ComedyFest amasses up-and-coming talent alongside established stars for a festive celebration of the international comedy circuit and the guts it has busted. On its Opening Night Gala, a dozen comedians propel their humour into musical numbers, parody sketches, and stand-up routines without a single watermelon meeting an untimely demise. Among the dozen, Doug Benson brings an act that has spawned CDs, TV appearances, and his documentary Super High Me.
In an evening dubbed Laughter and Reflection with Carol Burnett, the comedy legend brandishes her charming, hilarious banter while fielding questions from the audience. The spontaneity and intimacy of the program prompts unscripted authenticity from the comedy legend, who has won Emmys, Golden Globes, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and a participation award from her youth field-hockey team.
