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 geographicly and ethnically to become the community that we know today. Coney Island 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.
