THE WINNIPEG COMEDY FESTIVAL is presented as a series of five hilarious one-hour specials featuring Canada's finest comedians, taped in front of a live audience at the historic Pantages Theatre in Winnipeg. Each episode features comedians delivering material centred on a common theme. This season features:

15th ANNIVERSARY GALA 
Hosted by Seán Cullen, the 15th Anniversary Gala is a celebration of a decade-and-a-half of laughter, as past Winnipeg Comedy Festival favorites return for the ultimate "best-of" show, featuring Erica Sigurdson, Elvira Kurt, Nikki Payne, Darryl Lenox, Graham Clark and John Wing. 

CUSTOMS & INTEGRATION 
Hosted by Craig Lauzon, Customs & Integration features comics whose families came to Canada from elsewhere in the world, talking about the contrasts between their old world and their new home. It's a look at what being Canadian means in 2016. Featuring comedians Dan Taylor, Mark James Heath, Vishal Ramesh, Dave Merheje, Nour Hadidi and Martha Chaves.

BORN THIS WAY 
Hosted by Brent Butt, Born This Way showcases comedians who are unapologetically themselves performing autobiographical material discussing or demonstrating what makes them unique and interesting. Featuring Phil Hanley, Jess Salomon, Nick Reynoldson, Kyle Bottom, Lara Rae and Andy Kindler.

TRUTH BOMB
Hosted by Mary Walsh, Truth Bomb stars comics with passionate, uncompromising opinions doing material that reflects how they see the world and society. Featuring Danish Anwar, DeAnne Smith, Peter White, Adrienne Fish, Pete Johansson and Simon King.

ALL GEEK TO ME
Hosted by Naomi Snieckus, All Geek to Me is a celebration of geekdom, as self-identified nerds, geeks, and dorks reveal their joys, struggles, and geeky interests and obsessions. Featuring Mayce Galoni, Jeremy Woodcock, Cheryl Hann, Lori Gibbs, K Trevor Wilson and Greg Morton.
