Come on out to the culminating live show, The County Comedy Project Showcase on Friday, June 21st!

Comedy on the Moira

In August we return to The Belleville Club for a night of stand-up comedy one of Belleville’s historic venues and maybe its best-kept-secret.

The next night, we travel south to The County Cider Company for a stellar cinque-a-sept of live comedy overlooking picturesque Waupoos Bay.

Carson & Taylor Promise to Disappear

In September we invite you to Mt. Tabor Playhouse in Milford for two nights of Magic… hilarious and awe-inspiring Magic by TOsketchfest Audience Choice Award Winners Carson & Taylor.
