Description

Produced by Nasty Women Comedy, the inaugural Smash Comedy Festival is a three-day comedy festival spotlighting Vancouver’s best and brightest women/trans/femme/plus performers. Smash Comedy Festival is guaranteed to be a hilarious time, combining wildly funny, feminist-forward comedy from an elite squad of sketch, improv and stand-up comedians, PLUS writing and improv workshops, comedy karaoke and a ‘90s dance party! (And delicious beer from our good friends at Steamworks, too!)

It’s going to be a very special weekend featuring some of the city’s funniest and hardest working individuals, all in support of sending underrepresented kids to Improv Camp for the upcoming 2019 season.

Here’s the low-down on what to expect during what scientists are saying to be “the best weekend of our lives.
