Winnipeg Comedy Festival returns this May!

Fan favourites, fresh faces local stars and much needed laughter set to fill Winnipeg venues this spring!  

Winnipeg Comedy Festival, (WCF) presented by Liquor Marts is back, May 2 - 9 with a full line-up of shows at venues including historic Burton Cummings Theatre, Gas Station Arts Centre, Jubilee Place, and Rumors Comedy Club. With five new gala themes, fresh hosts and a hilarious line-up of performers WCF is set to bring Burton Cummings Theatre to life with much needed laughter. We kick off our roster of shows at the Gas Station Arts Centre with the return of the ever popular Red Carpet Comedy and bookend the week with a special Mother’s Day show hosted by brilliant mom and comedian Stéphanie Morin-Robert. Rounding out the festival are two glorious nights of CBC Radio’s The Debaters at Jubilee Place. We also welcome back WCF Rumor’s Comedy Club Series.  

"We're thrilled about the opportunity to once again host our festival in the springtime. Two years in a row we were pushed to autumn, but through all the difficulties and challenges, we take great pride in keeping the festival active and providing artists with opportunities to do what they do best." Nick Kowalchuk, Executive Director   

"I'm delighted to bring a terrific mix of audience favourites and fresh new faces to Winnipeg audiences in May. There are so many outstanding comedians in Canada, and I'm passionate about getting to show them off in fun and unique ways!" Dean Jenkinson, Artistic Director
