One fateful night in 2003 two friends came up with an idea for an Ottawa comedy show to support mental health. That night, Cracking-Up the Capital was born. The first show, held at the Centrepointe Theatre in 2004, was a great success. Over a decade (and many laughs) later the now rebranded Alterna Savings Crackup is a week-long festival of comedy, events and hi-jinx that attracts top comedic talent from around the globe.
The Alterna Savings CrackUp Comedy Festival invites you to join us for late night belly laughs and side-splitting humour with some of Ottawa's best comedians!
