 2017 FunnyFest COMEDY performers included:

 • CHRIS FAIRBANKS is so funny.

• GLEN FOSTER Glen Foster has been one of the top headliners in Canada for over three decades. He didn’t just work the road, he’s one of the guys who helped to build it. “That Canadian Guy” is one of the funniest comedians anywhere. Glen’s comedy appeals to those who appreciate a more intelligent, but slightly “edgy” brand of humour. His material is mostly clean and always clever, topical and timely, reflecting his own experiences as well as current events and popular culture.

• Sterling Scott is very funny. Super energetic and enable to engage a venue with raucous laughter! Sterling Scott won the 2013 annual FunnyFest Talent Search

• Sean Lecomber was the winner of the 2007 Just for Laughs homegrown competition. Sean has a 1 hour special on TV’s Comedy Network & was on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno AND CBC’s ‘The Debaters’.  Sean is a dry wit that will keep you laughing all the way home.

• Jamie Hutchinson has been entertaining audiences across the country for over 20 years. Jamie has appeared on CBC’s Comics, Madly Off in All Directions, Corner Gas. Delivering a smooth stand-up style to the comedy stage Hutchinson shares humour from his life’s experiences.

• Stu Hughes is an over-the-top risk taker, who ascends to silliness, and yet is authentically eccentric.

• Andrew Albert from New Brunswick, he brings his unique point of view to the West

• Noor Kidwai – Winner 2010 FUNNYFEST Talent Search ... He is a Muslim boy born in Calgary and raised in the small farming town of High River. Whoa!

•  John Howard Co-Winner of the 2013 FUNNYFEST Talent Search.

.• SIMON KING is a truly unique comedian who utterly changes a room when he hits the stage. His high energy, unflinching and intelligent approach to stand up has garnered him considerable attention from names like HBO, TBS, SIRIUS/XM, CBC, CTV. With a very popular hour long TV special and a hugely popular and critically acclaimed debut album making numerous top ten lists there is no doubt he is a force to be reckoned with.

.• Chris Gordon’s originality has made an impact: as the top comedian on CBC’s “So You Think You’re Funny?”; in the Seattle International Comedy Competition; being featured on NBC’s Last Comic Standing --- his appeal is undeniable.

• Joe KING “The King Is Here!” Joe King, the undisputed king of comedy, brings his satirical, witty and sometimes controversial brand of humour to a stage near you. An accomplished impressionist, with a keen eye for pop culture, Joe will definitely please any crowd before him.  Winner 2009 FUNNYFEST Talent Search
