NorthWest Comedy Fest has just announced a partnership with Just For Laughs to present JFL NorthWest, a new comedy festival taking place at various Vancouver venues from February 18 to February 27, 2016.
“I am extremely excited about our new partnership,” says NorthWest Comedy Fest director Heather Wallace. “The JFL brand and team will bring exceptional opportunities for growth to our increasingly successful festival. I look forward to the city’s continued support in making this a signature event for Vancouver.”
The NorthWest Comedy Fest has contributed to Vancouver’s vibrant comedy scene, attracting some of the biggest names in comedy over the past two years including Craig Ferguson, John Mulaney, Maria Bamford, Hannibal Buress, Natasha Leggero, and Patton Oswalt, to name a few.
The festival has become a major highlight of Tourism Vancouver’s winter calendar, something that will be greatly enhanced by this new partnership. The diversity and programming of the NorthWest Comedy Fest, combined with its loyal fans, has created a unique west coast festival that caught the attention of the JFL brand.
“We’re especially pleased to be partnering with the NorthWest Comedy Fest,” says Just For Laughs chief operating officer Bruce Hills. “It’s a first class event and provides a great opportunity for us to spread laughter and increase our festival footprint from one side of the country to the other.”
Further details, including festival lineup and ticketing details, will be released soon. In the meantime, visit www.JFLNorthWest.com for more info.
