Two Brand New Theatre's on Long Island - Manes Studio Theatre in Lindenhurst and Studio Theatre East in East Islip
in 2006, the Long Island Comedy Festival has become the longest running
comedy festival of its kind on Long Island! (Actually, it’s the ONLY
comedy festival of its kind on Long Island). Every summer during the
months of July and August the Comedy Festival tours across Long Island
with performances at top area venues in Nassau and Suffolk counties.
Each comedy showcase features a different line-up of top comedians from
Long Island, the NYC comedy scene and across the country. Most shows
feature five different comedians plus surprise comedians too. This is
stand-up comedy as it was meant to be! Each comedy showcase is an
evening of non-stop laughter and hilarious fun. It’s like a comedy
party that the audience has been invited to. Over the past years the
comedy festival has featured comedians from as far away as Ireland,
Australia and the UK. Over fifty comedians are featured each summer.
The birthplace of the Long Island Comedy Festival was the beautiful and
historic Theatre Three in downtown Port Jefferson which is why each
summer the Comedy Festival has made it a tradition to both begin and
ends its tour at Theatre Three.
