Welcome WICF patrons! We look forward to having you attend WICF. Many of you have questions about the festival, so here is a FAQ:

How do I get to a specific venue?
Directions to all venues can be found at:

I received a 2 for 1 coupon, how do I redeem it?
You may purchase tickets on line through or show up and pay in person.

Does my ticket get me in to other performances? No. You must buy individual tickets for each performance.

Why are there men performing in the Women in Comedy Festival?
WICF is open to comedians of all genders. We feel it is important to have performers of all genders to foster a community of inclusion.

Are any shows appropriate for children?
We can recommend the ImprovBoston Family Show (ages 4 and up) for those under 18. We cannot guarantee that the content of any of our other shows will be appropriate for audiences under 18 years of age. We recommend parents use their own discretion when attending shows with children under 18. Venues are open to all ages.

Do I need to have experience to sign up for a workshop?
We suggest that you have some experience as a performer (or in workshops) so that you will have a common vocabulary with the instructor and other performers. Everyone over 18 is welcome to register. Workshops will take place at ImprovBoston, Central Square Cambridge.
