What people are saying about FUNNYFEST:
“FunnyFest was rewarding and fun. I met many people. It was stimulating for me to work on a number of projects and jobs and to see so many ideas expressed. I was so impressed that the volunteers did it. I reached into myself and contributed. The laughing at the end of the night was the icing on the cake.”
— Volunteer, Trina Wapemoose
“As you conclude this year’s FunnyFest I wanted to pass on our organization’s thanks for all the special treatment and excellent service we received.
It was definitely a new format for Junior Achievement to recognize the many individuals that participate in our programs. The age range of the audience was perfect for this type of venue. I have had several calls in appreciation of the invitation and notes on the high caliber of entertainers. As this was the only part we had little control over, I greatly appreciate your efforts to manage this.
Thank you Stu for the professionalism shown to us and I hope the FunnyFest event will continue to be a part of Calgary’s entertainment scene.”

“None of the comedians here are household names, yet… but they have very loyal fans who come back every year. This is the ultimate smorg of comedy.”
Festival Volunteer Paul Flegal
“Every other day… I always chuckle when I think of some of the comedy bits and crazy antics I saw at FunnyFest last year. Sometimes my coworkers think I am being silly, when all I am doing is recollecting the hilarity!”
Audience member Bill Kozlov
“It’s like being in the all star game of comedy. Outside of FunnyFest, I rarely get to perform on the same bill with these guys because they’re all headliners.”

“This will be my 3rd appearance at FunnyFest… I’m not sure what, but something keeps me coming back. Maybe it’s the very unique festival atmosphere… or maybe it’s the great Calgary people … without their hockey.”
