The 10-day festival will feature the likes of Doug Benson, Jeremy Hotz, Charlie Demers, David Cross, Todd Glass, and many more. Tickets and downtown hotel packages are still available for many of the performances.

I have teamed up with Vancouver ComedyFest to offer up 3 amazing prize packages to see influential female comics Carol Burnett, Betty White, and Margaret Cho. There are many ways to enter to win these exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.
