Edmonton Comedy Festival

Welcome

2014 Edmonton Comedy Festival

Welcome to the 2014 Edmonton Comedy Festival presented by ATB Financial. With the help of our many sponsors we have once again put together the most amazing line-up of the top comedic talent in North America and brought them together for 4 days of funny.

We’ve put together an unforgettable gala series featuring 6 talent packed shows at the ATB Financial Arts Barns starring Mike MacDonald, Maryellen Hooper, Mitch Fatel, Rondell Sheridan, Andrew Grose and Alingon Mitra. Their combined credits include dozens of National television credits and thousands of festivals.

This year if you live tweet Tweet while in our audience at the Galas you could win terrific prizes during the intermission like Edmonton Comedy Festival shirts, hoodies and tickets.

We’ll once again bring the comedy to you with our cabaret series shows at Four Points by Sheraton and The Comedy Korral at the Kinsmen Corral in St. Albert. We're also introcuding a new venue for 2014 with Comedy on Whyte at the Varscona Hotel. You decide who you’d like to see, when and where you’d like to see them and there’ll be a show that’s just perfect for you.

If you’re a fan of new talent we will once again present “The Young Guns Comedy Competition” featuring 30 area amateurs all competing over 4 weeks at The Ranch Roadhouse for amazing prizes and an opportunity to perform on one of our big stages. Each week we’ll also have a professional emcee and headliner.

Back by popular demand is the “Funniest Media Person Competition” featuring your favorite radio, television, print and internet personalities competing for bragging rights and their favorite charity. We know they can predict the weather or report on The Oilers but can they do comedy? We’ll find out.

If you’re the parent of a tiny comedy fan we have that covered too with a Saturday morning kids show or maybe you’d like to learn how to perform yourself. We’ll once again offer free improv and stand-up classes taught by some of our professional acts.

It’s 4 days of funny and we want you to be a part of it. Take in a show, attend a workshop, enter our contests or volunteer to be part of it. No matter how you want to get involved you’ll be welcome at the Edmonton Comedy Festival presented by ATB Financial.
