Winnipeg Comedy Festival celebrates its 10th year with more than 75 comedians and performers in three venues around Winnipeg. The two-show pass allures audiences into a 10-day blithe bisque of comedic performances to choose from. Of the shows valid for this deal, popular draws include Hot Thespian Action’s Mix Tape, Urban Unreserved, The Dark and Stormy Show, and a script reading of the comedy-analysis play Incongruous. Popular performers storming the laugh barracks include Jon Dore, Kevin McDonald, and more, with opportunities for performer-audience staring contests.
Gala events at the Pantages Playhouse Theatre, one of Canada’s oldest vaudeville theatres, welcome attendees for a bounty of laugh morsels. Explore punch lines hidden in the pentatonic scale with On That Note..., a musical comedy show hosted by Andrea Martin and performed by Hot Thespian Action, Sean Cullen, George Westerholm, and others on Thursday, April 7 at 7:15 p.m. Best of the Fest, at 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 10, goads on gala-goers with fest-wrapping performances from Nikki Payne, Maureen Langan, and Jimmy Tingle, with a likely lot of last-minute surprise additions.
