From a press release:
Laugh Your Asheville Off announces 2014 lineup & ticket sales
Ticket sales for the 8th Annual Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival are scheduled to kick-off on Wednesday, June 18, 2014.
The five-day multi-venue festival spotlights more than 60 of the nation’s funniest up-and-coming and established comics. The comics have hopes of turning the heads of the major TV network casting agents, talent bookers, and comedy club owners that have traveled to the festival to discover stand-up comedy’s next crop of rising talent. “We’ve received seven years of support from Asheville and we’ve been embraced by the national comic community, and have grown into one of the largest comedy festivals in the country. In return, we hope to continually raise the bar of world class entertainment while keeping ticket prices reasonable,” said Charlie Gerencer, festival producer and production company executive.
Since submissions began this year, several hundred comedians from all over the country submitted stand-up clips hoping to secure one of the 60 performer slots. The festival kicks off Tuesday August 12, 2014, with the “Local Laughs for Brother Wolf” charity show at The Altamont Theatre. Proceeds from the show will be donated to Brother Wolf Animal Rescue.
Individual show pricing: $16/ticket
Cosmo Festival Passes: $66-$86 for access to all shows (excluding “Local Laughs for Brother Wolf”)
