Comedy Cares is an award-winning outreach initiative produced by the Edmonton International Street Performers Festival.
Proving laughter can soothe the soul, festival cast members use their talents to deliver healing smiles and chuckles to patients, family, and staff of Edmonton area hospitals and care facilities.
In 2020 during the COVID pandemic, we have positioned the entire Festival programming as an expanded Comedy Cares visit; an online source of smiles and laughter for everyone dealing with this worldwide health crisis. This is all based from the fact that, “Laughter is the Best Medicine” and we ALL need some healing to happen the world over.
When it is safe to do so, following all required procedures and protocols, Edmonton StreetFest’s Comedy Cares visits will return to hospitals, care facilities and to communities, small and large. In the meantime, we thank all of our past Comedy Cares sponsors for their support in bringing our special brand of healing laughter to the people who need it the most.
