Milwaukee Comedy Festival


The Milwaukee Comedy Festival is the largest multi-day comedy event in Milwaukee and the state of Wisconsin. We bring audiences the best stand up, improv and sketch comedy talent possible and establish an environment where performers can create new and exciting comedy together.

The Milwaukee Comedy Festival features multiple days of live comedy shows, special events, and headliners offering the ultimate comedy experience. Every show is unique and combines different styles of comedy like sketch and improvisation along side stand up comedy.

Over the years more than 14,000 people have laughed with the Milwaukee Comedy Festival. Audiences have traveled from all parts of Wisconsin to attend the fest and as far away as Los Angeles and Massachusetts for the biggest comedy event of the year.

Since it began in 2005 the festival has featured 1000’s of performers from across the country including New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, Philadelphia, Denver and Austin as well as Canada including Toronto, Alberta and Vancouver. Our alumni have appeared in movies and television including SNL, Comedy Central, HBO, BET, Conan, Late Nite and many more.
