Get ready, Toronto (and any Canadians visiting Toronto in May)! The city is about to get a whole lot raunchier.

The SheDot Festival is returning to Ontario's capital for the second year, and this time they've secured one hell of a headliner -- acerbic comedian (and recent Kim Jong Un impersonator) Margaret Cho.

Canada’s only festival showcasing all female comedians kicks off April 30 and runs until May 3, 2015 at Comedy Bar. In addition to four days of stand-up, sketch, improv, storytelling, workshops and panels, SheDot Festival will host a closing night gala at the The Danforth Music Hall on May 3, which is headlined by Cho.

"The SheDot Festival recognizes what has always been true: that women are funny. I am excited to celebrate with the hilarious ladies in Toronto," explains Cho.

Cho comes to Toronto for SheDot on the heels of her Golden Globes appearance as the Korean dictator, and the recent launch of her new TLC late night show, “All About Sex.”

Tickets for the gala go on sale on January 23, 2015 at 10 a.m.

The four-day festival is accepting submissions for workshops up until January 23, 2015. Send questions and submissions here.
