Quintana Roo, Mexico – The 2015 Akumal Comedy Festival is gearing up to once again bring some of the world’s most hilarious professional comedians to the heart of the Riviera Maya.
The event will kick off on Tuesday, April 14th in Tulum. The kickoff show will be held at Mateos Mexican Grill at 8 p.m. and launch nearly a dozen comedy showcases spread out over the next week. All proceeds from the comedy festival are donated to the Mexican Red Cross.
Currently in its fourth year, the 2015 Akumal Comedy Festival boasts an exceptionally strong assortment of comedic talent. Heavy-hitting national headliners including El Cojo Feliz, Roberto Andrade, and Daniel Sosa, plus international headliners Darryl Lenox, Maggie Faris and Derek Sheen are sure to be hot tickets. Festival curator Stand Up! Records’ roster acts such as Chad Daniels, Tommy Ryman and JT Habersaat will return as proven fan favorites.
Altogether, close to two dozen comedians will grace the 2015 Akumal Comedy Festival stages with credits including The Late, Late Show, Comedy Central, Last Comic Standing and much more.
A full performer lineup and schedule can be found now at AkumalComedyFestival with performances slated to appear at a variety of venues in Tulum, Playa del Carmen and the heart of Akumal itself. Numerous comedia en espanol shows are also planned.
Admission to most events cost between 150-200 pesos. As always, 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit the local Red Cross. Advanced tickets are on sale now through our website or you can buy tickets from the venues from April 1, 2015 onward.
Discount accommodation rates for visiting comedy fans are also being offered.
