Local media personalities attempting stand-up comedy for the first or second or third time. From television, radio, and print you’ll recognize them all! Each has written a five-minute set with the winner, as chosen by you and our panel of judges, receiving a trophy and bragging rights at the next media scrum. This will be a combination of comedy and virtual car crashes both figuratively and literally. Follow The Edmonton Comedy Festival on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or sign up for our news letter to s your show time reminder! The virtual show begins Wednesday, October 14th at 7:30pm. If you are unable to see the video after 7:30pm please refresh your screen.
We normally donate the door revenue from the Media Challenge to Free Footie that provides vulnerable kids with the opportunity to play in a safe, accessible, and inclusive environment at no cost to them or their families—because when kids are empowered through play, their families, their schools, and their communities are empowered as well. We are asking you to help us help the kids again this year by making a donation of any size if you enjoyed the show. Actually, even if you didn’t.
