THUNDER BAY -- Campfire Comedy is bringing stand-up comedy back to Thunder Bay in a big way.

We have an incredible lineup of feature shows planned for the first half of 2022 with more to come and we continue to offer private shows all year round for anyone looking to liven up their next party, work event or fundraiser.

In addition, we have started a monthly open mic night at Atmos and will be adding more venues so that local comedians can have a place to refine their skills and for anyone interested in trying standup comedy.

A double headlining show with Darren ”Little Man Hate” Frost and Kenny “The Raging Bull of Comedy” Robinson is coming to Thunder Bay. Veterans of the Canadian comedy circuit with festivals, TV shows, movies, and a fist full of rave reviews under their belts, Kenny and Darren are known across the country for their profane opinionated brand of “in your face” style and social commentary. With sold out shows at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival and with a combined 50 years of comedy experience in Canada, this show is bound to push your buttons and expand your horizons. The most outrageous, fearless, and laugh provoking material blasting from their mouths that you won’t hear on a comedy stage anywhere else.
