Pittsburgh Comedy Festival 2017August 24-27, 2017
About Pittsburgh Comedy Festival 2017The Pittsburgh Comedy Festival (PCF) brings together stand-ups and improvisers in a four-day celebration of all things funny. Our goal is to expose Pittsburgh to the art of comedy while we expand and engage our community of performers. That means informative workshops, programming for comedians and comedy fans young and old, and best of all, fantastic shows in the intimate setting of the Henry Heymann Theater, located on the University of Pittsburgh campus. Past improv headliners include Cackowski & Talarico, Bombardo and Sheldon.
The festival is produced by Comedy Arts Pittsburgh (CAP), a corporation who is fiscally sponsored by a 501(c)(3) organization. CAP's mission is to raise the profile of comedy as a performing art in Pittsburgh by making the greater Pittsburgh area aware of the thriving local comedy arts scene and bringing in professional, highly entertaining national comedy acts, specifically stand-up and improvisational theater.
