The Old Capital does not vibrates not to the rhythm of the humour in the month of August. ComediHa ! has taken the decision to cancel its 21st edition of its annual event. The six galas which were to be presented are moved in January.
A difficult decision to make after an edition 2019 record.
“We have sought all kinds of alternative solutions to present a new edition to the height of what is present, but it is impossible. This is not profitable financially, and we don’t want to play with the health of festival goers, artists and our teams “, launched the president and founder Sylvain Parent-Bédard.
The six rounds of the ComediHa ! Fest-Quebec which were to be presented at the Palais Montcalm were deferred to the 14, 15, 16, 21, 22 and 23 January 2021 at the Capitol.
The Palais Montcalm was not available for these dates, and the presence of tables, on the floor of the u.s. Capitol, makes the operation easier versus measures of alienation that may still be in effect.
The impact of this cancellation is a major financially.
“This is almost catastrophic, and I don’t see, honestly, at what point we will manage to fill these losses. It is, after a record year, a leap of several steps backwards. We are lucky enough to have a good financial health, and it is this that will allow us to pass through “, has he dropped.
ComediHa ! will small winks, digital and various projects to the festival-goers and lovers of humor in the course of the next few months.
