The comedians chosen for this show are all very respectful and professional, that being said we would recommend television rules. So TV-MA is ages 14+. It can be an all ages show from our perspective but attending parents should be aware that some colorful language may occur.
What is Alaska B4UDie Comedy Fest?
Alaska B4UDie Fest is a week long comedy arts festival with shows in Anchorage, Soldotna, Talkeetna, and Juneau, Alaska. We believe every performer should have the chance to step on stage in Alaska before they die. The Festival offers an opportunity for the best standup comedians in the nation to showcase their talents to Alaskan audiences, while also elevating and celebrating the work of Alaskan comedians.
Alaska B4UDie Comedy Fest is committed to offering the best that Alaska has to offer to its performers, including sightseeing trips and opportunities to explore the wilderness of the Chugach National Forest. Experience some of the best comedians in the country, and create unforgettable memories in one of the last truly wild places on earth.
Alaska B4UDie Comedy Fest and The AKComics907 are committed to servicing the Anchorage Community and helping out to those in need. In 2017, The AKComics907 raised over $6,000 dollars for Planned Parenthood.
