Don’t Miss Vancouver’s Funniest Women This Weekend at Smash Comedy Festival

In what promises to be a weekend of “patriarchy-crushing comedy,” Smash Comedy Festival goes down January 23 – 25 at Little Mountain Gallery and the Biltmore Cabaret and it’s too funny to miss.

Now in its second year, the three-day extravaganza, produced by Nasty Women Comedy, will celebrate Vancouver’s most hilarious women/trans/femme/plus (aka WTF+) performers. (Full disclosure: our executive editor, Stacey McLachlan is a co-founder and performer at Smash, and assistant editor Alyssa Hirose will be performing too.)  

With seven feminist-forward comedy shows, the offerings range from improv to sketch to stand-up with lineups like the Homo-Normative Drag Show and Sidekicks: Duo Sketch Comedy. Keep an eye out on their Facebook page for workshops including Boldness 101 and Turning Pain into Comedy during the day on Friday and Saturday.

Plus, the festival raises money to send underrepresented WTF+ youth to improv camp – so you can laugh till your side hurts and feel good about supporting some kiddos who really need it.

Tickets start at $10 but trust us, the Full Festival Pass for $40 is definitely the move — who doesn’t want to spend the weekend laughing?
