Where Bumbershoot sets itself apart though is the dual highlight between music and comedy, and this year is preparing to bring the best in today’s stand-up as well. This year the stage will be resounding with laughter due to the likes of Margaret Cho, Todd Barry and more. The ability to not only see a great musical performance, but to see some of the best stand-up comedians in the world today as well really brings a rounded curve to the enjoyment of the entire event, delivering on the preferences of everyone who takes the time to get out and enjoy the festivities.
