Western Canada’s biggest comedy festival hits stages and streets across the city every February for 13 hilarious days of star powered stand-up, podcasts, improv, and sketch performances, alongside breakout sets from comics you didn’t even know you loved! This year, the festival is taking place February 16-25, 2023.
At Just For Laughs VANCOUVER, festival goers curate their own unique experience. You want an arena show!? We’ve got an arena show! Or maybe you want to see the next biggest stand-up star in an intimate, underground, setting? We’ve got that too! And we’ll always offer you a chance to catch some laughs in the great outdoors at the Block Party!
About Just for Laughs
Founded in 1983, the Just For Laughs Group’s growth is concentrated on three major focal points: festivals (in Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and Sydney, Australia); television production and stand-up specials (most notably Gags, seen in 150 countries and on 100 airlines); and live shows (Canadian tour dates for Jerry Seinfeld, Trevor Noah, Kevin Hart, Jim Gaffigan, Bill Burr, Sebastian Maniscalco, John Mulaney, Jimmy Carr, Danny Bhoy, Amy Schumer, North American dates for John Cleese, and Eric Idle, to name a few).
The Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, which celebrated its 40th edition in 2022, is the world’s largest and most prestigious comedy event, welcoming more than 2 million people each summer.
