Ticket sales for the 9th Annual Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival are scheduled to kick-off on Thursday, June 25, 2015.

The four-day multi-venue festival spotlights more than 50 of the nation’s funniest and freshest comics in the industry today. The comics have hopes of turning the heads of the major TV network executives, casting agents, talent bookers, and comedy club owners that have traveled to the festival to discover stand-up comedy’s next crop of rising talent.

“The LYAO Festival has been such an amazing journey with the community as our co-pilots. Our mission has always been to provide above and beyond in both talent and production quality to our fans and with the response we get back from our audiences and the national comedy community we’re truly humbled to be able to continue to produce this great experience every year,” said Charlie Gerencer, festival Executive Producer/Director and production company executive.

Tickets go live following the recent article by Paste Magazine naming the festival as one of the top 5 must-see comedy festivals of the summer.

“This was a bit mind blowing to me. Being in Paste and ranked 2 spots away from one of the biggest and most prestigious comedy festivals in the world really pushes our team to continue to provide the best comedy experience possible,” said Ryan Folks, Festival Producer and Talent Director.

Since submissions began this year, several hundred comedians from all over the country submitted stand-up clips hoping to secure one of the 50 plus performer slots.

The festival kicks off Wednesday August 12, 2015, with the “Festival Launch Party” at The Highland Brewing Company. Then carries on to a three night run at The beautiful Diana Wortham Theatre for four shows ending on Saturday August 15th.

Individual show pricing: $20/ticket Cosmo Festival Passes: $80 offering a savings of $20 that gives access to every show on the schedule. Tickets available at
