Laughter is the best medicine and fresh air? There’s nothing like it! This summer, get your jollies at the Great Outdoors Comedy Festival, which is headed to Calgary with some incredible talent this year – including a beloved Netflix personality.

Bringing legends and newcomers together, this two-day funstravagaza is not one to be missed by those who love stand-up, especially if you’re a fan of feel-good TV shows.
