Anyone from New Jersey knows that if you are going to have a comedy competition in our state, then somebody from the Garden State better win it. We can be friendly and nice when we want to be, but when it finally comes down to who is going to walk out of a comedy competition with a $5,000 cash prize…well, then the gloves come off. And there are few working comedians in the business right now who deserve that win more than the New Jersey’s own, Jeff Norris.
Comedy is coming back to the greatest state in the world this summer! The internationally respected Cape May Comedy Festival is coming July 26-28, 2013 and touts performances by America’s top comedians, a stand-up comedy competition, workshops and an outdoor comedy carnival.
The Cape May Comedy Festival will be an all-encompassing town wide event. National headliners including Gilbert Gottfried produced by Catch a Rising Star and Two Funny Philly Guys featuring Joe Conklin and Big Daddy Graham will perform at the main stage at Convention Hall on Friday and Saturday. Other shows throughout town include The Wiseguyz of Comedy featuring Reverend Bob Levy from the Howard Stern Show, Ladies of Laughter, Hometown Heroes, Laugh with Pride, Deceptimcomics and an open mic hosted by High Note Humor. These shows will be occurring at staggered times at venues throughout the city such as The Grand Hotel, The Chalfonte, VFW Post 386, A Ca Mia, Pilot House and The Emlen Physick Estate.
