Plano Virtual Comedy Festival
The Plano Virtual Comedy Festival 2.5 has transitioned to a digital platform for 2020 because of the uncertainty of COVID-19.
This year’s festival will feature celebrity headliners Laurie Kilmartin, Karith Foster, Steve Hofstetter, Roxxy Haze, Mary E. Kennedy, Kurt Braunohler, and The Comedy Arena home of ComedySportz, along with over 100 of the funniest nationally known and up and coming stand-up, improv, sketch, and musical comedians from all over the world.
The online festival will present 17 comedy shows in four days, including a Comedy Brunch and Roast Battle. New shows this year feature sketch, alternative, and musical comedy acts. Musical entertainment will be provided by DJ Alexx, and there will be after parties each night of the fest hosted by The Comedy Arena and Folding Chairs Comedy Troupe with game shows, karaoke, prizes, and more.
On Saturday, October 3, the festival will feature a free family-friendly comedy show at 12 pm with a performance by The Comedy Arena home of ComedySportz.
Workshops will be facilitated by Dean Lewis of the Stand-Up Workshop and Daryl Felsberg of Tower City Comedy.
