2017 Festival

10,000 Laughs, October 19-21

Come laugh with us. Or at us. Whichever, honestly.

10,000 Laughs is an independently-produced, artist-run comedy festival with heart. And a big mole, which we should maybe get checked out. We founded the fest in 2011 to share our love of standup with the Twin Cities, and six years later, we're bringing talent from around the country to thousands of festival-goers in Minneapolis (that's you!).

The three-day festival puts indie comedy in the spotlight with thirteen shows, six venues, and sixty screamingly funny comics - from national headliners to total unknowns. Come laugh, drink, and listen to out-of-town comedians say, "Hey, Minnesota isn't that bad!"
