A Guide to Vancouver's Comedy Scene

DO - Vancouvers Comedy Scene

Add a healthy dose of laughter to your next vacation by checking out Vancouver’s diverse comedy scene. From hilarious festivals to humorous dinner theatre performances, there are more than enough jokes and jests to go around.

The Giggle Dam Dinner Theatre

Dinner and a show come together at The Giggle Dam Dinner Theatre, where guests can sit down to a four-course dinner before enjoying a hilarious musical skit comedy show. Choose from entrees like roast beef with honey glazed carrots, vegetarian pasta and a filet of salmon with baked zucchini. After filling up, get ready to laugh off some calories with outrageous impersonations, musical parodies, audience participation and plenty of politically incorrect humor.

Vancouver TheatreSports League

Experience the exciting world of improvisational comedy at the Vancouver TheatreSports League, where no two shows are ever the same. This fast-paced performance style is completely unscripted and integrates audience responses with Broadway music, games, props and more. These whirlwind shows are sure to keep viewers laughing — and on the edge of their seats — the entire time.

Vancouver ComedyFest

Get ready for some sidesplitting laughter when you buy a ticket to the Vancouver ComedyFest, an annual festival that has brought in some of the funniest comedians from around the world, including Carol Burnett, Jay Leno and Steve Martin. Shows will be performed in comedy clubs and performance venues throughout downtown Vancouver.
