Life is too short. It’s too short to not be doing what you love. It’s too short to be angry with loved ones. It’s too short to not go on adventures and see the world around you. It’s too short to not enjoy the little things in life and it’s too short to not add laughter into your life! Laughter is food for your soul. It’s the best medicine there is as Charlie Chaplin once said, “A day without laughter is a day wasted.” We are inviting you to come spend some time in Nantucket where you can enjoy a memorable getaway and take in a great event like the upcoming Comedy Festival.
Nantucket has a never-ending list of things to do and see. If you just go back in time on our blog here you’ll be able to read through a variety of things you can enjoy. We love helping our guests create the perfect Nantucket vacation, so we like to stay up on all the happenings around town. The Comedy Festival is an annual summer event that brings the top talent from the comedy circles to Nantucket Island. This year it will be taking place July 11-14, 2018 at various spots around town. This popular festival started in 2007 and has become the main fundraiser for Stand Up & Learn, which is an island-based, comedy education program that serves Nantucket’s children.
The four-day festival will bring with it a Kids’ Night performance, Ladies’ Night, the Boston vs. New York Comedy SmACKdown, and much more! You can buy tickets to each event and you can also take advantage of the Patron Pass, which provides exclusive access to private parties with comedians and reserved seating in the front of the theater for each and every show.
