Winnipeg Comedy Festival Unveiling Lineup

Winnipeg Comedy Festival Unveiling Lineup

By Sarah Klein

The 2010 lineup of the CBC Winnipeg Comedy Festival will be unveiled this afternoon at the Gas Station Arts Centre.

The 9th annual comedy showcase is always a huge hit, bringing in a handful of talent from across Canada for almost a week full of entertainment.

Last year’s lineup included Mike Bullard, Kevin McDonald, Kathryn Greenwood and Winnipeg’s Trevor Boris, just to name a few.

This year’s festival is promising to bring a more intimate experience and allow the comedians to really shine. A Homecoming act will also grace the stage, which the festival touts as “one of Winnipeg’s most sarcastic prodigal sons.”

The six-day festival runs from April 6-11. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.

Get a sneak preview of the expected festival guests at today’s media event (the public is also welcome) beginning at 1:30 p.m.

UPDATE: Some of this year’s lineup includes Kevin McDonald, Big Daddy Tazz, Patrick McKenna, Lorne Elliott, Cathy Jones, Derek Edwards and Mike MacDonald.
