The Brooklyn Comedy Festival was founded and put together by performers and producers Ashleigh Walker, Julian Kiani and Chris Nester (with the help of many other AMAZING people).

Brooklyn comedy is setting the precedent for the rest of the world right now. The Brooklyn Comedy Festival was created to celebrate the scene and to give every level of performer a chance to shine on Brooklyn’s many stages.

Each year, the festival showcases both established and up-and-coming performers from every realm of comedy, including sketch, standup, and improv. In addition to shows, there are after parties throughout Brooklyn hosted by local and national sponsors.
