we’re funny that way® Performance Festival – The world’s first queer comedy festival has expanded to a festival of comedy, music, burlesque, one person shows, story-telling and more. It returns June 12-5, 2019 at the Tarragon Theatre.
The We’re Funny That Way® Festival began in 1996 featuring the pioneers of queer comedy from Lea DeLaria to Bob Smith to Kate Clinton, co-founded by Maggie Cassella it was literally the FIRST international queer comedy festival in the world and is a 100% charitable event that benefits The We’re Funny That Way Foundation . The We’re Funny That Way Foundation’s mission is to make transformational donations to queer charities (presently across Canada, in development in the US, and with an eye to the world).
The subject of an award-winning documentary of the same name the Festival retired itself after it’s 15th year. But it was missed. And people continued to ask “when are you bringing the festival back”? Sparked by the establishment of Ford Cassella Productions and encouragement from some major sponsors like BMO, the festival returned with great fanfare and talent in 2017 and 2018 and returns June 12-15, 2019.
