NorthWest Comedy Fest knows what people want. They want drink tickets, adorable appetizers, gold standard stand-up comedy of both an international and local variety.
NorthWest Comedy Fest plans on giving some of the people what they want this October 24 when they announce their February 2014 line up. Exclusive Early Show ticket holders will get the booze, the food and Maria Bamford with support from Vancouver favourites Graham Clarke and Dino Archie.
Less Exclusive Late Show attendees will get all the comedy with none of the shoulder rubbing schmoozery (i.e. drink tickets and food). But what everyone is going to get is an evening of great laughs and a chance to win tickets.
Did we mention Maria Bamford is going to be there? We've already got our Arrested Development questions prepared.
Maria Bamford started her performing arts career in Duluth, Minnesota at the age of 11 where she starred in the Chester Park Elementary production of How the West Was REALLY Won! A short 29 years of self-discovery and secretarial work later and look at her now! Maria is the first female comic to have two half-hour Comedy Central Presents specials. She starred in the Comedy Central series, The Comedians of Comedy and Netflix’s Comedians of Comedy: The Movie. She has made multiple late-night appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Kimmel Live, as well as not-so-late appearances on John Oliver’s New York Stand Up Show, Premium Blend, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn and The World Comedy Tour: Melbourne 2003. Maria has guest starred on Louie (fX), and The Sarah Silverman Program (Comedy Central) and has recurring roles on the re-booted Arrested Development (Netflix), Tim & Eric: Awesome Show and Check It Out (both Adult Swim).
