With 13 shows, six venues, and 60 comedians, the 10,000 Laughs Festival continues to be the biggest comedy festival in Minnesota. This year’s event is undoubtedly the most talent-heavy, with headliners Beth Stelling, Dan St. Germain, and Shane Torres topping a list that also includes powerhouses like Carlos Delgado from Los Angeles and Dave Losso out of Chicago, plus local favorites Jeff Pfoser, Chloe Radcliffe, and Wendy Maybury. In addition to the insanely deep roster, one of the biggest appeals of the festival is the unique shows where standups can flex their comic muscle. There’s the Sober/Not Sober show where comedians perform a set, get fucked up, and try to perform that set again; the Vaudeville Remix variety evening featuring music, comedy, and yo-yo tricks; and the always unpredictable Dirty Show, which is exactly what it sounds like. This is not just a bunch of comedians getting drunk and telling jokes all weekend. Well, it is that. But it’s a lot more, too.

PROMOTIONAL EVENT DESCRIPTION 10,000 Laughs Comedy Festival!
Come laugh with us. Or at us. Whichever, honestly. 10,000 Laughs is an independently-produced, artist-run comedy festival with heart. And a big mole, which we should maybe get checked out. We founded the fest in 2011 to share our love of standup with the Twin Cities, and six years later, we're bringing talent from around the country to thousands of festival-goers in Minneapolis (that's you!).
The three-day festival puts indie comedy in the spotlight with thirteen shows, six venues, and sixty screamingly funny comics - from national headliners to total unknowns. Come laugh, drink, and listen to out-of-town comedians say, "Hey, Minnesota isn't that bad!"
