The second annual Plano Comedy Festival happens Sep. 12-15, 2019 in Downtown Plano.
Plano Comedy Festival is a concentrated effort by a team of Plano’s best comedy producers to combine their efforts and produce the best weekend of comedy the city of Plano can offer. Our patrons have the opportunity to catch both up-and-coming local stand-ups and critically-acclaimed headlining acts. And our performers, both locally and nationally based, have the opportunity to network and connect with other comedians, both based in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and from all over the United States. The end result? More high-caliber comedy shows here in the city of Plano for our own residents. And more chances for members of our comedy community to represent Plano, the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and the great state of Texas across the rest of the country.
Families are invited to join in on the fun from 11am-2pm on Sept. 14 in McCall Plaza for the fest’s FREE, family-friendly shows! Bring a folding chair or blanket and come enjoy an afternoon of free entertainment.
Showtimes, performers and locations vary so please check the Plano Comedy Festival website for more details.

Eric puts on a great show that earns him high praise with his unique blend of magic, charm and comedic wit. All of Eric’s tricks include audience members. From the show’s start to the incredible finish, audience members find themselves on stage trading barbs with Eric and having the time of their lives! The interchange is classic entertainment at its best. Be prepared to sit back and laugh at the hilarious and incredible Comedy and Magic of Eric Eaton!
Wes Corwin is a ball of pure nervous energy trying to pass itself off as human. Wes has had his unique brand of humor featured on Cracked.com and Funny or Die. As a stand-up, he’s opened for nationally touring headliners like Kurt Braunohler (Bob’s Burgers) and Jeff Dye (Better Late Than Never – NBC). He’s been featured on Altercation Comedy Festival in Austin and Memphis Comedy Festival. This past year, Wes was awarded “Best Comedian in Dallas” by the Dallas Observer and won the 2018 Funniest Comic in Texas competition. When he’s off stage, Wes sits in front of his computer, struggling to effectively end his comedy bio.
The Comedy Arena home of ComedySportz in McKinney, TX is in the business of comedy. Especially improv comedy, where it’s all made up on the spot. The Comedy Arena prides itself on producing all types of comedy styles, from sketch, to stand up, but especially improv (short-form, long-form, city style, and even competitive style which has been a specialty for years).
The Comedy Arena doesn’t just put on shows, but it’s a venue that teaches students how to become comedic performers and take the stage whether for performance purposes, or just in life.
A ComedySportz match is comedy played as a sport where two teams go head-to-head in a competitive, down to the buzzer, swinging for the fences, all out, high energy, fast, fun, clean, improvisational showdown that’s perfect entertainment for all audiences. All dialog spoken and scenes performed are improvised meaning they are entirely made up on the spot!
