Laugh Your Asheville Off: Asheville's Premier Comedy Festival Returns!


Laugh Your Asheville Off Returns to Asheville

Mark your calendars for the second week of August because the Southeast's funniest event returns to Asheville! Laugh Your Asheville Off comedy festival is the largest comedy event in our part of the country and Ashevilleans couldn't be prouder to host it again. Read on for some more information about this hilarious, super fun event!
 
From Wednesday, August 9th to Saturday, August 13th, Asheville will be the epicenter of funny. Visitors and comedians from all over the country will travel to our beautiful mountain city to laugh and celebrate the work of the nation's best comedians. Nearly 400 stand-up artists put their names in the hat to be chosen as select performers and just over 70 phenomenal comedians were chosen. TV networks, agents, talent bookers and top industry representatives will be in attendance to discover the next stars of the comedy world. In fact, previous performers have gone on to appear on such shows as The Late Show with David Letterman, Conan, and more!
 
We love this festival for many reasons - it brings joy to our us and our neighbors, it reminds us of how good it feels to laugh without restraint, it gives us an opportunity to showcase our awesome community - but perhaps best of all, this event is non-competitive. There are no winners and losers, just a whole bunch of funny people doing what they do best - making us roll in our chairs with mirth. It is a showcase of talent and at its core, it's for the love of the laugh!
 
Ticket packages and community discounts have been on sale all month, and if you haven't arranged for yours, now would be the time to do it! Big nights have been known to sell out and trust us, you don't want to miss these performers. The first two nights of the festival will be based at Highland Brewing Company, where the beer is always frosty and the good times are shared by all. The final four nights will take place in Downtown Asheville at the Diana Wortham Theatre. Click Here to check out the complete schedule!
