There will be plenty of fun and laughter in Los Cabos, B.C.S., October 2-6, 2013 when the Cabo Comedy Festival, with the slogan “Where the Land Ends And The Laughs Begin,” launches at the popular Mexican beach destination.
Supported by the Mexico Tourism Board, the Los Cabos Tourism Board and the state of Baja California Sur, the 5-day event will be produced by LA-based the Zaring Group, and feature performances by some of the entertainment industry’s top stand-up headliners along with a best new comic competition comprised of opening act-level performers. The festival will also include panel discussions on the business of comedy with writers, producers & cast members from some of television’s top comedies, celebrity golf and poker tournaments, both of which will benefit DIF, a local children’s charity, and after-parties at some of Cabo’s most popular nightclubs. The festival will culminate with an awards presentation and celebrity roast.
Heather McDonald, Niecy Nash, Jon Lovitz, Jeff Dye, Dana Eagle, Rick Najera, Paula Poundstone, Carol Leifer, Cathy Ladman, John Mendoza, Paul Provenza, Sherri Shepherd, Greg Hahn, Craig Shoemaker and Mark Eddie are just some of the performers expected to head south of the border for the festival. And Robert Townsend will make his return to stand-up in Cabo!
“Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” performer and sketch writer Seth Herzog will host a special performance of his critically acclaimed weekly NYC-based alt-comedy show “Sweet,” which counts among its alumni a ‘Who’s Who’ of comedy royalty, including Zach Galifianakis, Paul Rudd, Whitney Cummings, Justin Long and Janeane Garofalo. Other special sets include the Las Vegas based ‘Icons of Comedy,’ whose revolving list of performers has included Andrew “Dice” Clay, Bobby Slayton, Hal Sparks, Gilbert Gottfriend and Elayne Boosler, and a slate of comics from the popular Manhattan comedy club The Stand, including Yannis Pappas, Sherrod Small (VH1 “Best Week Ever”), Joe DeRosa, Nikki Glaser, Big Jay Oakerson and Ari Shaffir.
