Laugh Your Asheville Off: An Asheville Comedy Festival

Laughing It Up in the Mountains

The 9th annual Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival is set to take place in August and the Carolina Mornings Team couldn't be more excited! Quickly becoming one of the largest stand-up comedy events in the country, The Laugh Your Asheville Off Festival will be a side-splitting event that you won’t want to miss!  Read on to learn more about the event.

August 12th - 15th are the dates, so mark your calendars now!  Taking place at both Highland Brewing Co. and the Diana Wortham Theatre, the festival will feature over 50 comics from all over the nation. Taking pride in the belief that comedy should be enjoyed rather than judged, this event is at its core non-competitive.  This means that participants and audience members can just focus on having fun, on laughing, and on learning a few great jokes. Everyone is a winner!  Tickets are only $20.00 per day and can be purchased the day of the event.

The Schedule:

Wednesday, August 12th at 8:00PM

The opening night will be held at Highland Brewing Co and features Billy Wayne Davis.

Thursday, August 13th at 8:00PM

12 comedians from all over the country will ring in the second night of the laugh fest at the Diana Wortham Theatre.

Friday, August 14th at 8:00PM

12 more comedians will try their luck at making you double over in laughter on the third night of the festival at the Diana Wortham Theatre.

Saturday, August 15th at 7:00PM and 9:30PM

The final day of the festival will be split into two events - the first begins at 7:00PM and will feature 9 amazing stand up comics from across the country. The second begins at 9:30 and will also feature 9 comics, plus the headliner - Chris Roach.
