      JFL NorthWest comedy fest has added a third Bill Burr performance on Wednesday, March 7 at the Orpheum Theatre to add to his two sold-out performances at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on March 8 at 7 and 9:30 p.m.

      Meanwhile, it's added a bunch of new laugh-getters to the programming.

      The Lucas Brothers will now appear March 9 at Biltmore Cabaret at 9 p.m. and March 10 at Rio Theatre at 7p.m. The chilled-out New Jersey-raised twins, Kenny and Keith, are best-known for their animated series Lucas Bros. Moving Co., starring roles on Fox's The Grinder, and appearances on Netflix's Lady Dynamite. They released their hour-long comedy special On Drugs on Netflix last year. 

      YouTube hit Aunty Donna, the hilarious "ripper web series set in an Aussie Backyard BBQ", has also been announced for March 9 at the Rio Theatre.

      Stop Podcasting Yourself hits the Biltmore Cabaret on March 8, hosted by local comedy kings Graham Clark and Dave Shumka.

      The new Vancouver Comedy Awards now take place on March 5 at the Fox Cabaret.

      Bill Burr has added another show on March 7

      Retail Nightmares, musician Jessica Delisle and comedian Alicia Tobin’s podcast about the horrors of working in customer service, has been added on March 2 at the Fox Cabaret.

      And to hear the jokes that never quite make it to the other stages, check out B-SIDES with Chris Gordon on March 1 at Yuk Yuk’s, "a live compilation of throwaways and rarities".

      A bunch of new local acts has also been added to the Best of the West series copresented by JFL NorthWest with SiriusXM: HIP.BANG! at Home, HIP!.BANG! Improv, and The Sunday Service.
