Comedy Festival Brings Big Laughs Just Steps From Halifax Hotel

19th Annual Festival, Near Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel, Features More Than 30 Comedians

HALIFAX, NS -- (Marketwired) -- 04/07/14 -- The month of April kicks off with the prank-filled April Fool's Day, so it's only fair it closes out with some comedy, too. This month, the Ha!ifax ComedyFest returns for its 19th year, bringing top comedians from North America to stages across the city and just steps from this Halifax casino hotel.

From the 23rd to the 26th of April, the Ha!ifax ComedyFest will showcase more than 30 comedians from across the continent on 14 stages throughout the city. One of the main festival stages is at Casino Nova Scotia, which isn't only convenient to this downtown Halifax hotel -- it's connected. An indoor walkway connects the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel to the venue, where festival-goers can catch the Opening Gala and All Star Show, both highlights of the event.

Tickets for the festival start at only $15, giving visitors an opportunity to see top acts at low prices. Comedians on the lineup include Orny Adams, Jeremy Hotz, Greg Proops, Mike Macdonald, Cathy Jones, Ophira Eisenberg, Keith Pedro, Gilson Lubin and Steph Tolev. For information about the Ha!ifax ComedyFest, including the lineup and tickets, visit http://halifaxcomedyfest.ca/.

Before heading out for an evening of laughs, guests can grab a great meal at the Halifax waterfront hotel's restaurant, harbourstone sea grill & pour house. The modern restaurant offers both relaxed lounge and traditional table seating, making it the perfect place to enjoy an evening cocktail with friends or a sit-down meal. The menu features both small plates and larger entrees of Canadian coastal cuisine made with locally sourced, fresh ingredients. Share an appetizer, such as kettle chips, fish tacos and chicken digits. Enjoy an entrée, including Avery's now famous lobster roll with tarragon sour cream on crunchy sourdough, or fresh tagliatelle with local seafood and pink peppercorn sauce. End with a chocolate peanut nutter mousse or our ever changing Harbourstone cheesecake.

Visitors in town for the festival can explore other attractions during their visit. Taste local beers at Keith's Brewery, get a little culture at the Maritime Museum of Atlantic or Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, or simply relax at the hotel, offering an indoor pool and full-service spa.
