Winnipeg Comedy Festival
The Winnipeg Comedy Festival celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2021. In a year slowly beginning to emerge from the shock of global pandemic, events like live comedy began to come back. Five one-hour TV specials of the “Winnipeg Comedy Festival” were produced for broadcast on CBC by award-winning production company Frantic Films. Each gala features some of the most dynamic performers on today’s comedy circuit, delivering unique stand-up material designed around a common theme.
