FunnyFest is hitting Calgary again for another year – their 16th, in fact. The comedy festival promises to push the envelope with every show and theme, and belly laughs are sure to follow.

Offering 11 days and nights of comedy and 70 performers, FunnyFest does it all from high-brow to low-brow and everything in between.

Each show runs one-and-a-half to two hours long with a minimum of six performers per show. Some shows are free, while others cost up to $25.

Additionally, FunnyFest is a sponsor of local non-profit organizations and charities that support youth programs and the arts.

Each year more than 50,000 people attend the 50 comedy showcases available – it’s the largest comedy festival in Western Canada and the second largest in the nation.
