JFL Northwest is a 12-day festival consisting of stand-up comedy as well as podcasts, improv, film, sketch performances and more. While the core of the festival will revolve around the stand-up gigs, there will be a myriad of other mediums explored. This year’s lineup promises to provide a diverse selection of comedy from a wide variety of artists for a spectrum of comedic tastes. Both “A-list” comedians and “up and comers” will be represented at JFL Northwest 2020.
