The Dallas Comedy House is proud to present the 6th annual Dallas Comedy Festival, March 24-28. You read that correctly. We've added an extra day of comedy for you and your loved ones. Our headliners this year feature performers who have starred in Orange is the New Black, Jackass, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, among other highly rated shows and series.
"Every year this festival gets bigger. But it also gets better. We work hard to bring in a lot of fresh comedy faces from around the nation while highlighting all the great local comedy here in the Dallas scene," said Amanda Austin, owner and artistic director of the Dallas Comedy House. "Sarah [Adams, executive producer of the Dallas Comedy Festival] put a lot of work into the festival to make sure it's the comedy event of the year for Dallas. These performances and workshops are going to be so great this year."
This year's headliners include the improv troupe Bangarang!, which features Lauren Lapkus (Orange is the New Black, Jurassic World), Betsy Sodaro (TBS' Buzzy’s), Jacob Reed (Comedy Central), David Theune (Mulaney, Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Ryan Meharry (How I Met Your Mother), Toni Charline (Sketch Cram), Adam McCabe (Adult Swim, Funny or Die), and Ryan Stanger (Conan, Comedy Bang! Bang!), as well as stand-up sets from Preston Lacy of the Jackass film franchise.
The Dallas Comedy Festival continues to expand its workshop lineup, and this year is no different. Workshop topics taught by the troupe Bangarang! include group games (Jacob Reed), openings (Toni Charline), true "yes, and" (Adam McCabe), shut up and move (David Theune), and staying committed through scenes (Betsy Sodaro). Registration for workshops opens on Friday, Feb. 13, at 10 a.m., with early bird rates available until March 6.
A limited number of All Access Festival Passes will also go on sale on Friday, February 13, at 10 a.m. for die-hard festies. Single show tickets will go on sale starting March 1.
