The festival is taking place at both Northwest Film Forum and Club Comedy, both venues are within walking distance of each other, making it easy to see all the acts you want. You’ll be able to watch both opening and closing night Main Stage shows featuring bigger named performers, followed by after-parties where comics can interact with fans and pass holders. Fun right?

Keep in mind this festival is short and only happening for a few days so be sure to buy your tickets ahead of time. You can learn more at the festival’s website. Enjoy!
