The we’re funny that way® festival live streaming gala and shows!

we’re funny that way®  Performance Festival – The world’s first queer comedy festival has become a huge performance festival and returns June 3-6, 2020 back to it’s “home”  Buddies in Bad Times Theatre.

The we’re funny that way® Comedy Festival created by Maggie Cassella in 1996  was literally the FIRST international queer comedy festival in the world.  It is a charitable event that benefits The We’re Funny That Way Foundation. The Foundation’s mission is to make transformational donations to queer charities across Canada.   Since it’s inception, the Festival has donated close to half a million dollars in donations to queer charities.

FCP revived the festival after a brief hiatus and the Festival is stronger than ever,  featuring an amazing array of diverse LGBTQ2S talent who have played to packed houses of enthusiastic audiences.  Festival goers feel a part of something bigger all while being wildly entertained.
2019’s festival was a rousing success – seeing the talents of Carolyn Taylor (Baroness Von Sketch), Colin Mochrie and Deb McGrath (Whose Line/Little Mosque and proud parents of a trans daughter), Maggie Cassella’s new live talk show – “In Other News” – and a premiere performance by Canadian two-spirit superstar Shawnee. And none of it would be possible without the underwriting of our amazing sponsors – BMO, Cineplex Media, and The Comedy Network, The P. Austin Family Foundation, and 2019’s lead sponsor Sokoloff Lawyers.

If you’d like to be involved in the festival (sponsorship, volunteer, perform) please write us here we’d love to hear from you.
