About this event

The Black Women In Comedy Laff Fest was born out of rage. With decades of being left out, unseen and overlooked in the industry, we decided it was time to create our own seats and our own table.

Taking place during Juneteenth Weekend at various venues in the Bed-Stuy area as well as two comedy clubs in Manhattan, the Black Women in Comedy Laff Fest will showcase some of the funniest Black Women, LGBTQ+, and Non-Binary individuals.

Our goal is to create opportunities for each of these talented women to be seen by industry movers and shakers, talent agents, and bookers while simultaneously creating a safe space for us all to shine. 

Come enjoy FOUR DAYS of stand-up, storytelling, and panels highlighting all of our collective “Black Girl Magic" and thank you to this year’s sponsors LT@Compass and Stand Up Girls! NY.

Headliners include:

Leighann Lord Queens, NY, Meshelle “Indie Mom of Comedy,” Baltimore, MD, Meme Simpson Chicago, DC’s Franqi French, New Jersey’s Shatara Curry, Areshia McFarlin, and Calise Hawkins, and from the Bronx, NY Rhonda Hansome plus other special guests.

JUST ADDED CAROLINE’S ON BROADWAY, NEW YORK COMEDY CLUB-EAST VILLAGE LOCATION, and GOTHAM COMEDY CLUB. (ALL TICKETS FOR THOSE SHOWS MUST BE OURCHASED ON THEIR WEBSITES.
