Newport’s own comedy festival is back and it’s bigger than ever!

As depressing as it is to realize that summer is rapidly coming to a close in Newport, we should recognize that Labor Day hardly means the death of fun in the City-By-The-Sea. One of the great fall events, the Rogue Island Comedy Festival, is now in its fifth year and is bigger and better than ever with a total of sixteen comedy shows (14 stand up and two live podcasts) over Columbus Day Weekend, featuring over sixty-nine comedians! (Cue childish giggles)

The lineups for this years’ shows have been announced and tickets are now available at the festival’s website. Plus, Doug Key and his elite crew of festival runners just revealed this sick poster, which we’re sure will become ubiquitous throughout Newport in the next month and a half.

A plethora of comedic talent

There is going to be some seriously funny people on display come Columbus Day weekend (October 10-14). Many have performed the festival in the past. Others have appeared in Wasted Talent shows. We’re looking forward to profiling some of these rising stars as the festival gets closer!
