Wed 11/18-Sun 11/22
Thu 11/19 @ 7:30PM
There’ll be comedy, comedy everywhere, when the Cleveland Comedy Festival launches on Wed 11/18 and continues to bring the laughs through Sun 11/22 to Kennedy’s at PlayhouseSquare’s Kennedy’s Theatre and Outcalt Theatre, as well as partner venues the Bop Stop, Hilarities 4th Street Theatre, the Funny Stop in Cuyahoga Falls, Bounce Nightclub, Bonkerz @Hofbrauhaus Cleveland, Bevy at Birdtown and Sachsenheim Hall.
There’ll be dozens of comedians of all types, local and national with multiple shows each night. You’ll want to sort out what appeals to you by going to the Cleveland Comedy Festival website. Read CoolCleveland’s feature about Saturday night Bop Stop headliner Jim McCue here.
One show that should be of special interest to Cleveland comedy — and television — buffs is the Big Chuck and Lil John tribute show at PlayhouseSquare’s Outcalt Theatre. Local funnyman Mike Polk Jr. hosts the evening that will feature the late-night movie hosts telling stories about their show and some of its famous characters, talking about their mentor Ernie “the Ghoul” Anderson and showing classic clips from their career.
Tickets are $15 in advance, $18 day of show.
