Hoboken Comedy Festival 2014

Bringing the community together with comedy

Last year winner Pete Bladel closed the Festival by opening for Artie Lange to a sold out crowd at Hoboken’s Pilsener Haus & Biergarten on 14th Street. The other performers on the show were Ardie Fuqua, Dan Soder and Jamie Maddog Mattern.

“We really like to have our finger on the pulse of up and coming comedians,” says Festival Coordinator Dan Frigolette, “which is why we’ve added the New Talent Performances to the Festival.”

The 5th Annual Hoboken Comedy Festival which supports the Liberty Humane Society will take place September 29th – October 5th 2014. The new talent opportunities will come Monday through Thursday for those comedians who have submitted online. Closing each of those performances will be headliners from television and film.

The Hoboken Comedy Festival proves for the fifth year in a row that Hoboken residents don’t need to cross rivers to enjoy a great comedy experience. The aim of the festival is to encourage comedic art and performance in Hoboken and offer entertainment close to resident’s doorsteps. It’s a celebration of the growing opportunity for great comedy in Hoboken for years to come.

Not only does the Hoboken Comedy Festival hope to bring laughs to attendees, they hope to tighten the community that supports the festival by giving back. Each year the Hoboken Comedy Festival selects a charity to support by donating $1 per ticket and accepting donations during all performances and on their website. For the third year in a row the Hoboken Comedy Festival is very proud to support the Liberty Humane Society –a non-profit animal shelter dedicated to promoting animal welfare who provides animal sheltering, behavioral therapy and adoption services.
