Moisture Festival of Comedy/Varietè turns 14

Expect unleashed revelry, extraordinary performances & special events March 16-April 9

The Moisture Festival of Comedy/Varietè running March 16 through April 9 is turning 14, attracting an abundance of high quality and high-energy comedy/varietè acts, as well as continuing the festival's unique brand of burlesque shows.

The Moisture Festival's varietè shows feature a rapid succession of acts showcasing comedy alongside awe-inspiring physical and mental dexterity, with poignant moments of strength and delicate beauty to make audiences laugh, wonder, shake their heads in disbelief and truly appreciate how live entertainment can exhilarate and bring real joy. A live show band propels each performance.

Varietè has its roots in the Music Halls of 19th-century England, cabaret in Europe and vaudeville in America. Because of the talented artists currently working in this genre, it is still fresh, exciting and tremendous fun for the audience. This year's burlesque is curated by Cathy Sutherland, Martha Enson and Armitage Shanks.
