North Carolina does a few things well: college basketball, medical research, tobacco farming, and barbecue. And, apparently, comedy. Starting in the beginning of February, The Triangle will be host to the 11th Annual North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival. With over a thousand performers expected over the course of three weeks, it’s kind of a big deal.

Here’s how it works. The three weeks are broken down by genre: sketch comedy runs for four days, followed by a stand-up comedy block, and the festival will close with five days of improv comedy. With so many performers and varieties of comedy, there’s something for everyone. Details on specific performers (and all those nitty-gritty details about logistics) are available nccomedyarts.com.
