Women in Comedy Festival

WICF and ImprovBoston present shows and workshops at ImprovBoston

The 9th Annual Women in Comedy Festival (WICF) helps close the comedy gender gap by featuring women and their allies across all comedic platforms, celebrating comedy from various perspectives. The HBO and NBC-sponsored festival held April 19-22 includes events in improv, sketch, stand up, storytelling, and musical comedy from some of today's best national, international, and local acts. Wanda Sykes and Tig Notaro will headline the festival, and Kat Radley, Gina Yashere, Emma Willman, and Boston’s own Kelly McFarland will take the stage. The festival will also include interviews, panel discussions, and workshops.

Many events SELL OUT, so we suggest buying tickets in advance.
