Whale City Comedy started as a monthly BYOB show based out of The Whaling City, NBMA. The shows quickly became a sold out hit leading to the birth of the weekend comedy extravaganza AKA The Whale City Comedy Festival! Whale City Comedy is dedicated to delivering the best of big city comedy scenes to our beloved Whaling City and beyond. Beyond the stage, we want to create an opportunity for the community to come together and laugh together. Our festival aims to foster a sense of joy, camaraderie, and shared love for the art of comedy among both attendees and comedians. Ticket Link: www.whalecitycomedy.com/tickets
