After a successful first year of bringing stand up favourites, up and comers, improv, podcasts and all ages events, the NorthWest Comedy Fest is back for another year, and they’ve made their first lineup announcement for their 2015 Festival taking place from February 12 to 21 around Vancouver.
The 2015 festival marks the beginning of a partnership between the NorthWest Comedy Fest and heavy hitter Just For Laughs, who will help to bring amazing talent to Vancouver, along with the Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF), who will be presenting a special series of curated film events at the Vancity Theatre, including A Tribute to Robin Williams and An Evening of Comedy Short Shorts.
Headlining the festival are performances by Craig Ferguson, Maria Bamford, Doug Benson, The Debaters, Hannibal Buress and Moshe Kasher, along with the return of the Comedy Club series with shows by Ali Wong, Brian Posehn and Todd Glass.
