Comedy Country is thrilled to return with our 7th summer comedy series in Prince Edward County. And we’re over the moon to be kicking things off with the return of Comedy on the River! Back by popular demand, Comedy on the River is an exciting and immersive outdoor live comedy experience.
Explore the natural beauty of Prince Edward County on this fantastically fun 2-3hr outdoor experience. Enjoy a guided paddle on the Black River on your way to a secret location for an exclusive, water-access-only live comedy show!
Our friends at Cabin Fever Kayak will get you kitted up with a boat and all the safety gear you’ll need. Or, if you’ve got your own canoe, paddleboard or kayak, Cabin Fever will help get you onto the river safely.
Your boat is your seat, and the fabulous Black River is our theatre!

WEATHER POLICY & RAIN DATE
Comedy on the River is a rain or shine event. That said, there are certain conditions that make the experience dangerous and impossible to enjoy. In the event of such weather conditions (including heavy rain, high winds and localized thunderstorm activity), Comedy Country may postpone the show to another date. The tentative rain date for this performance is Sunday, September 12th.
What to bring
Dress for the weather – Sunscreen, bugspray and long pants are smart choices.
Hats and shades are prudent on sunny days.
Sweaters, layers and a brolly in case of weather.
PFDs (for those bringing their own boats) – gotta wear ’em.
Snacks and drinks – non-alcoholic, of course.
Something soft for your tush!
Maybe a blanket.
An open mind.
A great attitude.
Don’t forget your mask!
Oh… and your camera (waterproof cases are smart)!
