Two Phases Of Funny!

As we navigate safely reopening the city and the country, Winnipeg Comedy Festival has made the decision to move forward in two phases:  

Phase One will take place in under two weeks – August 21-28 – and will feature live shows with limited seating at venues including the Gas Station Arts Centre (GSAC), Wee Johnny’s, and Rumors Comedy Club.

Phase Two will include more shows and occur later in the fall (dates TBC) when WCF can safely proceed to record television galas.

“Our top priority is the health and safety of our audience, performers, volunteers, and staff. We will always follow provincial guidelines regarding audience capacity and physical distancing,” says Nick Kowalchuk, Executive Director of the Winnipeg Comedy Festival. 

Artistic Director Dean Jenkinson says if you haven’t laughed since March, come share in the 2020 festival. “In these uncertain days, laughter’s so important. We’re working hard to safely bring you terrific WCF shows featuring some of our brightest regional comics.”
