Laugh Your Asheville Off Continues Through August 12th

The multi-venue festival spotlights more than fifty of the nation’s funniest and freshest comics in the industry. The festival takes place through August 12th.

The festival hosts comics, industry professionals, and talent producers during a multi-day event in Asheville, North Carolina. The comics have hopes of turning the heads of the major TV network executives, casting agents, talent bookers, and comedy club owners that have traveled to the festival to discover stand-up comedy’s next crop of rising talent.

Previous talent have gone on to appear on network sitcoms, half-hour Comedy Central specials, and late night flagship shows like The Late Show with David Letterman, Conan, and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
