Celebrating its fourth consecutive year, the Great Outdoors Comedy Festival (GOCF) announced in early November that it is doubling down on the laughter and good times by multiplying their eclectic comedy and entertainment festival from four cities to eight across North America in 2024, naming London as an expansion site. Delivering a one-of-a-kind experience since 2021, the festival known for its extensive and varied lineup is also committed to creating a festival environment in which everyone feels welcomed. GOCF, produced by Trixstar LIVE, has raised and donated over $350,000 to local charities across Canada to date while they continue to strive towards creating a diverse, inclusive and safe experience that celebrates and features all forms of performance comedy, from local emerging acts to superstars. The festival pledges to continually evolve their robust green event practices year over year, making certain that they leave nothing but laughter in their wake, while also improving accessibility efforts to ensure everyone has access to the same festival experience.
