2014 Cape Fear Comedy Festival concludes

Selfie, even though we all know better and aren't 14
The 2014 Cape Fear Comedy Festival came to a close early Sunday morning around 1am with a great set by 4 times CFCF attendee Matt White. Timmy Sherrill got up and gave a brief speech and I ended up in the selfie to the left here.. I then promptly lost my wallet with all my credit cards and my ID and then promptly got pulled over and given a speeding ticket taking the final comic home.  However, it did nothing in any way to diminish just how awesome I felt our 5th Annual Comedy Festival went.  I saw some of the best comics in the country and Wilmington's base of comedy fans once again proved to be one of the highest quality out there. Can't wait until the pictures from our photographer come up!  Soon I will post a much longer thank you to all involved.  Until then.  #CFCF2014 is the hashtag on twitter and facebook where you can read comedians posts about the festival.

Grawlix Headline Closing Night of the Cape Fear Comedy Festival

Ben Roy and Andrew Orvedahl of the Grawlix headline tonight's final night of the Cape Fear Comedy Festival
The Grawlix (well 2/3 of them at least minus Adam Cayton-Holland who is on the Funny or Die Tour) are coming to City Stage tonight at 8pm.  Myself, I am a HUGE fan of the stuff these guys do.  From their web series to their consistently sold out live shows in Denver and beyond, the Grawlix are combining improv, sketch and stand-up comedy in their live shows in a way no one else is doing.  Joining them tonight at City Stage will be Dan DeCotiis, Jay Whitecotton, Madison Davis and Irene Tu.   Tickets are available for $12 at the door.  This admission covers all other shows you want to see tonight at the festival!

FREE Improv Dinner show tonight 6:30pm at The Beam Room!

Join us in just over an hour to see some Improv from Atlanta, Automatic Improv!!  The show is free if you use the promo code 'AUTOMATIC' at the door!

Automatic Improv performs improvisational comedy. If you don’t know what that means, it’s kinda like Whose Line Is It Anyway except without Drew Carrey!

Tonight is the final night of the Cape Fear Comedy Festival.  You can also get a day pass for tonight for $8 ONLY AT THE AUTOMATIC IMPROV SHOW!!!  After that they are $12.  Come out, eat dinner and laugh with Automatic Improv!!

Great Weather and Laughs for first day of #CFCF2014

Reel Cafe, venue for the Cape Fear Comedy Festival
The opening night of the Cape Fear Comedy Festival was bad to the bone.  Comics performed at Manna Avenue, City Stage and Reel Cafe. Judy Gold rocked it out at City Stage and the comics converged on Manna to watch the final show of the night before conviening to Reel Cafe to close out the night.

One experience you must have as a fan attending the festival is just hanging out with the comics.  Check our twitter feed at @capefearcomedy to ind out where we will be ending the night together tonight!

Day passes for the day are only $8 and festival passes are once again but for only $15 which includes all remaining shows for the festival.  You cannot purchase these tickets in advance at this time, all tickets can be purchased with cash or credit card at any one of the four venues running tonight.

Remember, ALL venues are just 3 blocks apart.  So come Downtown, have dinner at Reel Cafe, Manna or Front Street Brewery, then enjoy the most amazing comedy you will ever see for just $8.
