While you may have heard some buzz about the Maine Comedy festival you will want to read some of the facts that make it one of the most loved events in the greatest city in the nation! Read below for the top 8 reasons you don’t want to miss out on the fun and excitement at this great event! 4 days 3 nights, 15+ Comedians, 4 comedy shows, charity poker & golf tournaments, live music, pool parties, cliff jumping
Maine Comedy Festival has partnered with the amazing and generous people of The Bethel Inn Resort, in beautiful western mountain town, Bethel Maine, to host our 3rd annual comedy arts event. This Resort is absolutely gorgeous with so much to do there. This classic New England resort is surrounded by 200 acres with mountains and lakes on all sides, providing a variety of traditional Inn and luxury townhouse accommodations, offering every possible amenity and activity along with both fine and casual dining. Most of all provide welcoming and friendly service in an atmosphere of casual, country elegance with affordable vacation packages to suit your needs, budget and taste.
Our annual charity golf tournament will take place on Friday morning, August 2, and as usual, comedic hecklers are welcome on the golf course. Winner foursome receives more than $500 in prizes.
Newly added to the fest for the first time ever is our charity Texas Hold â€˜Em poker tournament to the weekend too! 1st place winner receives a weekend for two at The Bethel Inn Resort, valued over $1200.
Both charity events will benefit The Unity Project. UP is a non-profit, school-based bias and harassment prevention program focused on Maine middle and high schools. The mission of UP is to build strong leadership among young people and adults to prevent harassment and create safe schools.
Weâ€™re doing the pool party again this year too and we will be adding live music and drink specials and free swag (merchandise) giveaways and there will be an informal trip to Frenchmanâ€™s Hole on the side of Sunday River for the daredevils who want to attempt 20-30 foot cliff jumps into a swimming hole with the Bethel and Newry locals.
I couldnâ€™t be more proud of the developing line up! We have been asked repeatedly for a local Maine favorite to return to the fest, so weâ€™ve taken the hint and asked funnyman and local comic, Johnny Ater to emcee all the comedy showcases. Johnnyâ€™s humor and faces are NOT to be missed.
Weâ€™ve also asked one of Comedy Centralâ€™s Top 10 Comics To Watch to headline our Saturday night 9pm show, Matt D. He is one of the most dry-witted comedians on the rise! We know how Mainers love that dry wit and thatâ€™s one of a dozen reasons why weâ€™re having him lead that big second show Saturday night.
