Schedule & Tickets

The Pittsburgh Comedy Festival brings together stand-ups and improvisers in a five-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 Theatre.
