Laughing Skull Comedy Festival
Now in our fourth year, the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival seeks to honor and reward the artists that most personify The Art of Comedy.
Laughing Skull Comedy Festival features a five-day event at the Laughing Skull Lounge. Top comedy industry from Chelsea Lately, David Letterman, Jimmy Fallon, Comedy Central, IFC, and more descend on the city to see 60 pro-level comics compete against one another. Winners of the festival receive cash, prizes, and months of work from comedy clubs, agents, and partner festivals.
A portion of all proceeds go to the Lenny Bruce Memorial Foundation to help build a drug recovery facility called Lenny's House: a place to get healthy mentally, physically and emotionally while learning life skills to be better prepared for reentry into a sober world. With this partnership, we brought in Kitty Bruce, Lenny's daughter, to announce the winners of each show. You can see the official Lenny Bruce website at lennybruceofficial.com. If you would like to donate to Lenny's House, we encourage it.
We look forward to seeing you at the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival!
