What is SheDot Festival?

SheDot Festival is Toronto’s festival of funny women. Toronto is one of the biggest and best comedy centres in the world; it is home to many of the world’s best comedians and a favourite spot for international performers to be seen. Let’s face it, Toronto loves to laugh.

Funny women have long been but a small percentage of the comedy community, but things are shifting. The time for women in comedy is now. Women are increasingly becoming a more powerful force on the scene and it’s time for Toronto to celebrate the femmes of funny. SheDot Festival will feature hilarious shows, workshops and panels and so much more. Toronto will be bombarded with four days of hilarious women from all over the world, performing in show after show of non-stop laughter.

When is SheDot Festival?

This event is held every spring in the city, with the next one taking place May 4-7 2017. Also, in association with SiriusXM, we will be announcing a series of shows featuring SheDot Festival alumni throughout the fall/winter.

Is SheDot named because it's in the TDot?

Ding! Ding! Ding! Yes. Please tell the others wise one.

Can my company sponsor you?

We are actively seeking sponsorship. Let’s have a conversation about that! Please reach out to info@shedotfestival.com

Who can attend SheDot Festival?

Anyone, everyone! Though please note that many shows contain adult content.

Can men attend the workshops, panels and shows?

Unless otherwise stated, yes. Panels are open to everyone, comedians and civilians. If there is a workshop that is geared to “women only”, we will note that very clearly. It thrills us to no end to continuously see our audiences packed with men and women.
