is an annual celebration of comedy and community based in the neighborhood. Coney Island Comedy Festival consists of two competitions – a one liner joke competition that is open to the public as well as the main event live stand up competition where contestants compete to win it all, the shows consists of contestants and professional comedians.
We are proud to announce 2021 Coney Island Comedy Festival is Free for All Audiences. We know that 2021 is going to be emotionally and economically challenging for our community and the world. We believe that ‘Laughter is the Best Medicine’ as we recover and heal in 2021. Our belief has guided our decision to make this year’s Coney Island Comedy Festival Free for all Audiences.
The Coney Island Comedy Festival was founded to connect historically diverse community of Coney Island with a wide range of views through the art of laughter. Stand Up Comedy is an unique form of art that exercises freedom of speech just as Coney Island culture where straight and honest talk is delivered with a smile.
Through out the history human innovation has been changing the landmark neighborhood geographically and ethnically to become the community that we know today. Local residential community has been infused with new generations of immigrants for over 100 years. Nothing is more evident of the ethnically diverse culture than the mixture of people that are from different ethnicities, races, religions, social backgrounds, and life experiences. When an assortment of comedy and diverse community come together everybody wins.
