Festival is a laughing matter

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Bigger festival = bigger laughs.

After two years as a single night event, the Niagara Falls Comedy Fest has supersized itself for its return in February. With a roster of nearly 20 comics, the event has gone back to its roots to become a three-day affair. And it will be stacked with some of Canada’s most established comedians.

Avoiding the “pretense” of big comedy festivals in Toronto and Montreal was key, says organizer Mark Matthews. The veteran Niagara Falls comic wants it to be three nights of accessible comedy, with many of the same performers you’d see in bigger festivals.

“Montreal is unobtainable for the average person to go and sit and watch a show,” he says.
