Cap off 2013 with a shot of laughter at this stand-up show featuring some of Boston's best comics, hosted by comedian Jim McCue. Known for his razor-sharp wit and ability to work the crowd, McCue headlines shows around New England and beyond, and regularly entertains the troops overseas. He's also the founder of the Boston Comedy Festival, and he's invited some of the hottest acts from this year's edition to come and entertain. Both shows end well before midnight, and are designed as a light, funny appetizer to your New Year's Eve celebration, before the serious partying gets started later in the evening. Learn More

The Boston Comedy Festival Contest has become known for its ability to provide significant breaks to up-and-coming comics. This is a great chance to see talented comedians destined to be household names.
The Boston Comedy Festival Contest started out with 96 bright-eyed comics from all over the country competing for a chance at $10,000 in prize money. Now it's down to 16! Eight will perform in Semi-Finals One, the remaining eight in Semi-Finals Two. Only four comics will move on to the Finals!

About the Ticket Supplier: Boston Comedy Festival
The Boston International Comedy & Movie Festival began back in 2000 as a way to showcase New England stand-up comedy talent to bigger audiences and the entertainment industry. Given the long line of successful comedians who got their start in Boston, it seemed to be a natural fit for such a festival. The audience agreed, and the event has grown every year. In addition to the traditional stand-up comedy routines, the festival also includes improv, sketch comedy, and one-person theatre shows, as well as the newly expanded movie portion of this festival.
