With 8 amazing shows at 3 Burlington venues, The Waterstreet Cooker, The Lodge at Emma’s Back Porch and the Art Gallery of Burlington. The Burlington Comedy Festival has outdone it’s self with amazing well known comics performing at small intimate venues. Based on limited seating, we are expecting to sell out all the performances.

In addition to the evening shows, we will be bringing back the Family Variety Comedy Show to offer something fun for all ages. Featuring, magicians, jugglers and a classic Strong Man; Mighty Mike! Held Saturday February 22nd at 2PM at the AGB.

New this year to celebrate the 5th anniversary, we will be presenting 2 Comedy Cabaret shows featuring TV magician and star of Discovery Channel’s Wizard Wars; Billy Kidd, along with Master Illusionist David Garrity and World Record Holding Yo-Yo champion Mark Hayward. Together with guest stand-up comedians, these shows are sure to be one of the festival favourites.

Since the inception of this event we have partnered with local charities and 2020 will see the return partnership of the Gift of Giving organization.
