Launched in 2006, the Long Island Comedy Festival has become the longest running comedy festival of its kind on Long Island! (Actually, it’s the ONLY comedy festival of its kind on Long Island).  Every summer during the months of July and August the Comedy Festival tours across Long Island with performances at top area venues in Nassau and Suffolk counties.  Each comedy showcase features a different line-up of top comedians from Long Island, the NYC comedy scene and across the country. Most shows feature five different comedians plus surprise comedians too. This is stand-up comedy as it was meant to be!  Each comedy showcase is an evening of non-stop laughter and hilarious fun.  It’s like a comedy party that the audience has been invited to.  Over the past years the comedy festival has featured comedians from as far away as Ireland, Australia and the UK.  Over fifty comedians are featured each summer.  The birthplace of the Long Island Comedy Festival was the beautiful and historic Theatre Three in downtown Port Jefferson which is why each summer the Comedy Festival has made it a tradition to both begin and ends its tour at Theatre Three.
