The South Jersey Comedy Festival is a comedy extravaganza featuring stand-up comedians and improv comedy troupes on August 17th 2013. Since South Jersey is within a small radius of several metropolitan areas, it is an ideal location to celebrate these forms of live comedy. Each part of the festival will celebrate a different form of live comedy; at the end of each section, the SJCF will crown a new winning comedian or improv troupe, which will win the title of “Best Stand-up Comedian/Improv Troupe,” and a CASH PRIZE! The winner(s) will also be profiled on GardenStateComedy.com as an up and coming performer in the state!
Every performer/troupe will be judged silently. The festival will take place at Harper’s Pub, located at 1 Gibbsboro Road in Clementon, NJ, right in the heart of South Jersey. All day passes are available for comedy fans and spectators for $10 per person.
