Comedy on the River – September 10th 2022 at 4pm-6pm

Comedy Country has combined the best of outdoor leisure and County scenery with legendary comedy talent to create a truly unique live comedy experience.

After four SOLD OUT SHOWS over the past two summers COMEDY ON THE RIVER is back – an unforgettable, distinctly “County” comedy experience. Get out on the river for some fresh air, a little exercise and a guided paddle to a water-access-only live comedy show at a secret location on the shores of the Black River. With a few authentic “County” surprises along the way, COMEDY ON THE RIVER is the quintessential summertime experience in Prince Edward County.

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!

Get ready for a little nature, some fresh air, a little exercise, and a whole lot of fun on Black River in beautiful Prince Edward County with an unforgettable lineup of some of Canada’s top comedy talent:
