All-Fest Passes are on sale NOW. All-Fest Passes are only $45, and admit holders to every single showcase of the festival, including the unique comedy experience “Late Late Breakfast” with Chicago’s Danny Maupin and Tyler Jackson. Holders get priority seating, with standby tickets available at the door when there is room. All-Fest Passes will sell out very quickly, as only 130 are available. Brew some coffee and be ready at midnight.
The festival's 30 showcases in three Orlando neighborhoods — including the Milk District, Downtown, and Mills 50 — will feature great independent comics from around the country. Each showcase is hosted by one of Orlando's best standup comedians.
Rhea Butcher, Saturday's headliner, was a recurring performer on the TruTv series “Adam Ruins Everything,” and continues to tour the country, just recently on the Back To Back Tour with their wife, Cameron Esposito. Their debut standup album, “Butcher” and “Back To Back: Live” both debuted at number one on iTunes. Rhea was also named one of Variety’s Top Ten Comics To Watch 2017 at the Just For Laughs festival.
Friday's headliner, Janelle James, has been named one of the "50 Funniest People in Brooklyn" by Brooklyn Magazine. She's appeared on HBO's Crashing and Comedy Central's @midnight, and she toured with Chris Rock last year as an opener on his Total Blackout tour.
