The 2014 Cleveland Comedy Festival is coming soon!

The 7th annual Cleveland Comedy Festival is happening November 17 - 23, 2014.  Last year was an amazing festival with over 50 shows in 7 days, and over 100 comedians performing.  We had record attendance and ticket sales and we promise that 2014 will be even better.
