August 12-15, 2015
Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival returns to Asheville with 50+ comedians, the largest stand-up comedy event in the southeast. Attending are major TV network casting agents and talent bookers, some of the top industry representatives with hopes of discovering stand-up comedy’s next crop of rising talent.
Previous Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival performers have gone on to appear on The Late Show with David Letterman, Conan, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and a few were chosen to have their own half-hour Comedy Central specials.
Nearly 400 stand-up comedians have submitted their media clips in hopes of securing one of the performer slots. Despite the event’s enormous growth over the past few years, the festival keeps its format non-competitive for the talent, showcasing the best stand-up comics for the audience and maintaining affordable ticket prices.
Ticket packages and community discounts will be available in early July. A complete bundle package for access to every showcase will be available with a 30% discount. Individual shows are $20/ticket. The Cosmo Festival Passes are $80 for access to all shows (excluding "Local Laughs for Brother Wolf").
