6th annual comedy fests in NJ: From Hoboken to Atlantic City

There are so many comedy festivals happening this weekend, this month and pretty much all the time across North America in the world now it’s tougher to track them all.

But this October, there are two happening on either end of New Jersey to hype you to, especially if you’re on the East Coast.

Right now is the 6th annual Hoboken Comedy Festival, running through Sunday and featuring a ton of up-and-comers, competitions and culminating on Sunday with Jersey’s own Artie Lange.

Next weekend, it’s also the sixth anniversary of the Atlantic City Comedy Festival, which is a two-day all-star affair at Boardwalk Hall. The lineups feature Mike Epps, Sommore, Bruce Bruce, Earthquake, Don DC Curry, J. Anthony Brown, Tommy Davidson, John Witherspoon, Cocoa Brown and Finesse Mitchell.

Please note if you go: NJ Transit just hiked fares. Don’t blame me! I’m just the messenger.
