September 18, 2018 |
Come celebrate iconic comedians and comedians-in-the-making at the 19th Annual Boston Comedy Festival Finale at the Somerville Theatre. The festival will showcase established comics as well as new comedic talents, all while competing for a $10,000 prize. Eight of the top comedians will compete for the prize money and bragging rights of being BCF Festival champ. In addition, the Comedian of the Year Award will be presented to Boston’s own Gary Gulman and comedic actress Jennifer Coolidge with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Other highlights of the festival include a live taping of the Chip Chipperson Podcast and stand-up by Emo Philips, the absurdist comic who is as sharp today as he was when he first made his mark in the comedic world more than 30 years ago. Also, don’t miss Ophira Eisenberg, whose multitalented stand-up focuses on her smart, cheeky style. Tickets for the Boston Comedy Festival Finale are $30 per person and can be purchased online.
