In its final week, Moisture Festival continues the revelry with a dozen shows between now and Sunday April 12th. Nine of these shows, including the Closing Night Variete are at Hale’s Palladium. You can find the full calendar here and tickets are available here.

Wait, what is the Moisture Festival?

The Moisture Festival is the world’s largest Comedy/Varietè festival, running for four weeks every spring in Seattle.

The Moisture Festival’s mission is to enrich the community by presenting an affordable annual festival showcasing the art of live comedy/ variete performance.

Produced by a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, The Moisture Festival is sponsored by a variety of organizations including numerous Fremont-based sponsors. Read more about how the festival came to be here.

The Moisture Festival presents our 12th year of high energy comedy/varietè shows featuring a rapid succession of acts showcasing comedy alongside awe-inspiring physical and mental dexterity, with poignant moments of strength and delicate beauty to make audiences laugh, wonder, shake their heads in disbelief and truly appreciate how live entertainment can exhilarate and bring real joy. A live show band propels each performance.
