The Winnipeg Comedy Festival has long been considered a comics' festival. The comedians who come to the prairie city to perform over a week in April absolutely love their time here. The festival treats the performers incredibly well, and the crowds are friendly, responsive, and plentiful. And lucky for audience members, when the stand-up comics are happy to be there, things usually end up being pretty damn fun for those who get to see them on stage.
For 2013, the Winnipeg Comedy Festival's 12th edition, we got to speak to a whole bunch of those comics -- a mix of new festival performers and old favourites. And for local comedy fans in Winnipeg, we're also once again giving away tickets to shows, with draws happening up until Friday. Keep coming back to this page as we add more interviews throughout the week with great people like Jon Dore, K. Trevor Wilson, Kenny Robinson, Darren Frost, Charlie Demers, and many more. We'll even have some interviews from during the festival posted in the weeks to come!
