The Pride Comedy Festival was created as an opportunity for diverse communities to unite through Stand-up Comedy.
Our vision and mission are simple and mighty. Invite people with diverse expressions to share and laugh at our unique comedic life stories.
Santa Barbara is the perfect community for the inaugural Pride Comedy Festival. Our stand-up comedy scene continues to thrive and expand.
Our local community, visitors, and tourists are calling Santa Barbara Comedy Heaven. We have weekly shows, premier monthly specials, and the annual Santa Barbara Laugh Festival in November kicking off America’s holiday season.
We are proud to include the Pride Comedy Festival in our fantastic Santa Barbara tradition of professional annual events and conferences, with spectacular festivals, and parades; all bringing people together in our heaven-on-earth hometown.
The 2023 Pride Comedy Festival is also honored to financially support the annual Santa Barbara Summer Solstice Parade.
