Grindstone Comedy Festival

Both national performers and rising local talent will come together under Edmonton’s spotlight.

Grindstone Theatre's third annual stand-up, sketch, and improv comedy festival will be bringing both national performers and rising local talent together under Edmonton’s spotlight. This inclusive 4 day in-and-outdoor festival is spread across West Ritchie, Old Strathcona and the French Quarter, and will feature 23 public performances from 50 North American artists (of which 50% are women and people of colour).

In addition to amazing local programming like The 11 O'clock Number, ThunderCATS, Donovan Workun, Sterling Scott and the Grindstones Standup Competition, the festival will feature international headliners including Debra DiGiovanni (Comedy Central, NBC, Just For Laughs), Che Durena (Just for Laughs), Amber Nash (Archer), Ken Hall (Umbrella Academy) and Ryan Belleville (Working Moms).

Sit back and enjoy the stand-up stand-off competition, open mic parties, and much more during the ultimate festival for your funny bone!
