It's going to be no holds barred at this year's YYComedy Festival Gala which will be featuring 8 standup comics that will leave you rolling in your seats. This gala event will bring together the strongest comedic talent lineup ever presented on the stage in Alberta this year.

Harland Williams will be headlining the show and if you don't recognize the name you've probably seen him on shows such as Conan, David Letterman, Kimmel and Leno. He's also appeared in the films Half-Baked, Dog Park, There's Something about Mary and Dumb and Dumber.

Along with Williams you'll be able to enjoy Darrin Rose. He is one of the Mr. D stars, which airs on CBC and is also the Comedy Network's Match Game host. He'll be taking some time off from his own tour to be at this event.

Mike McDonald will be returning to the stage following a liver transplant that he received just 15 months ago. He has recently also returned to the Just for Laughs shows where he currently holds the record for the most festival appearances.

Falcon Powder and DeAnne Smith will also be on stage at this gala, making their debut performance in Calgary. This sketch troupe has won awards and the team is currently nominated to be Canada's Best Female Standup.

Penny Robinson and Amanda Brooke Perrin will also be showcasing their talents this year at the YYComedy Festival Gala. Acting as host will be Jessica Holmes who is known for her comedy on the Air Farce.

Tickets are available at Ticketmaster for $38.75 and $48. The event will be held at Jubilee Auditorium on 14th Ave., N.W. on October 4 and the fun and laughs all begin at 8 PM.
