In 1620 the Pilgrims set sail from England to escape religious persecution, and eventually landed on Plymouth Rock. Now, in 2010, things are going to get a lot less holy. From July 6 – 10, Loretta LaRoche Productions is hosting the first annual Plymouth Rock Comedy Festival in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
The festival will showcase over 40 performers, including comedians Al Ducharme, Bernadette Pauley and Tom Cotter.
The town will hold an open mic, a stand-up comedy competition, an indie short film comedy competition, and much more. The events will be held at various locations around the town ending with the presentation of the “Ruffled Feather Award,” which will be given to a “…talented individual who has positively “Ruffled the Feathers” of the world: socially, emotionally and optimistically through the use of humor and creativity.”
Festival passes start at $70. For more information visit plymouthrockcomedyfestival.com.
