10,000 LAUGHS IS BACK
OCTOBER 17-19

We’re returning for our ninth year October 17-19! 10,000 Laughs is a comic-centered, artist-run stand up comedy festival with heart. And a big mole, which we should probably get checked out. Since 2011, 10,000 Laughs has been bringing national headliners and unknown talent together for three October days to make Twin Cities audiences laugh their little tushies off. We’ve got headliners like Aparna Nancherla, Brian Posehn, Dan Cummins and Ron Funches plus tons more.

Tickets go on sale August 30th! Until then, follow us to stay up to date on everything 10,000 Laughs:
