What is Ladyfest?

Celebrating femme and non-binary folks, comedy, and all people who celebrate ladies!

The team behind Women in Comedy Montreal are proud to present Montreal’s FIFTH annual LADYFEST, taking place at Theatre Sainte-Catherine, Montreal Improv and Blue Dog Motel from September 19-23, 2019

LADYFEST Montreal was born out of a desire to celebrate the hilarious and talented female comedians in Montreal and beyond.

In 2015 our pal and mascot Narnie the narwhal led us through 3 crazy nights of hilarity and underwater themed jokes! It was basically the best time ever and we are so excited to be doing it for the 5th time in 2019!

LADYFEST 2019 will bring together comedians, improvisers, sketch artists, performers and storytellers from Montreal, Toronto and beyond in a week long bash of merriment.

Casting the LADYFEST umbrella over several local weekly independent shows, the festival will culminate with five nights of comedy, each featuring a different line-up of comedic styles (Stand-up, Sketch, Storytelling, and Improv).

We are a community of bodacious sea creatures navigating the wild waters of comedy, busting through the ice and onto the stage to take you by storm, to make you cry laughter tears to show you just how ready we are to bring the funny.
