Asheville Comedy Festival Starts Today
Why wait for the weekend to have fun? Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival dares you to let go of the workweek and cut loose at the largest stand-up comedy event in the southeast.
Festivities are lead by Jake Johannsen, a regular on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” HBO and Comedy Central, and are nightly now through Saturday, July 17.
Tonight, the festival is at the Diana Wortham Theater and includes headliner Josh Gondelman, winner of the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, and a late show with the Beards of Comedy tour, featuring Asheville’s own Joe Zimmerman. Friday features back-to-back
showcases with over twenty rising stars in comedy. On Saturday, Jake Johannsen takes over the stage.
