TD Place is excited to announce that Cracking-Up the Capital (CUTC) is back for another winter of sidesplitting hilarity. Running January 31 to February 6 across the Nation's Capital, the 12th annual winter show will feature two prime events at TD Place - a new attempt to beat the Guinness World Record for the most snowmen built in one hour and Comedy Night in Canada to close out the week of hysterical fun in support of local mental health initiatives. 

"The Cracking-Up the Capital events at TD Place last year were a resounding success and we're looking forward to another fantastic week of comedy, entertainment and supporting some worthy local mental health programs," said Mike Cerha, VP Entertainment and Venues at TD Place.

CUTC was founded 12 years ago. It began as a one-night comedy show and has grown into a week-long festival that takes place during Winterlude. With the help of sponsors, and supporters, CUTC has raised over $175, 000 in support of local mental health initiatives. This year’s festival will benefit DIFD at The Royal Ottawa, Partners for Mental Health, Causeway, the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre, the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health and the Amethyst Women’s Addiction Centre.
