hoboken comedy festival

The 5th Annual Hoboken Comedy Festival will cone again be supporting local business as well as donating $1 from every ticket to the Liberty Humane Society, a Jersey City dog shelter which supports Low-Cost Veterinary Clinics and Dog and Cat Adoption Services for all of Hudson County. Donation bins will also be available on site at all performances.

Carlos Mencia, Big Jay Oakerson, and Christian Finnegan will join Chuck Nice, Greer Barnes, Andrew Schultz, Chris Distefano, Mike Britt and Keith Alberstadt at the festival which runs from Monday, September 29th through October 5th.

The festival was started in 2010 by comedian and dog lover Dan Frigolette as a three day event featuring a handful of area talent. The event has now grown to a week-long festival featuring over 100 comedians from across the globe. Performances will take place at several clubs including Willie McBride’s who will host three shows, Tilted Kilt, The West Five, Pilsener Haus Biergarten, and the legendary Maxwell’s Tavern, which will bring comedy to their backroom for the first time under its new ownership. “We are so happy to be the first comedic event at the new Maxwell’s Tavern,” says Frigolette, “this venue was a huge part of our first threeyears in Hoboken, it’s only right that our joint history continues to grow.”

All sets will begin at 8pm, with additional late-night sets scheduled at 10:30pm on Friday and Saturday. An outdoor, dog-friendly show will take place at Pier 13 on October 4th from 3-6pm.
