SLC Comedy Carnivale

When: Thursdays-Sundays, 7:30 p.m. Continues through Sept. 28 2014

The first year of any event is always a bit of an experiment to see what will work. The second year, though, gives you a shot to become a tradition. And thus the SLC Comedy Carnivale is ready to make its mark as an annual celebration of comedy. One thing it did well right out of the gate and is returning to again this year is using multiple venues—12 total this year—including many not even comedy oriented, like 5 Monkeys in Murray, the Sugar Space Studio for the Arts in both Sugar House and on 800 West, and even the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art. This year, the event has expanded to 18 shows over four days, featuring more than 70 comedians from all over the country, without a single clown in sight. And it's not limited to stand-up; there's improv/sketch comedy, a celebration of the best of the fest at Keys on Main titled It's Always Funny In Salt Lake City, the Weird & Awesome show with Emmett Montgomery, and a sketch screening at Brewvies.
