  • Chris Collins, Verna Gillis, and Audrey Rapoport

The first annual Woodstock Comedy Festival (September 20-22) isn't simply aiming for belly laughs. Certainly, the three-day orgy of stand-up, improv, and film, stars veterans (Bobcat Goldthwait, Dick Cavett, Upright Citizens Brigade), newcomers (Rick Overton and Eddie Brill) and locals (Verna Gillis, James Judd, Adam Mamawala, and Audrey Rapoport) alike. But it will also feature a series of panel discussions by comedy writers, offering career tips for the chronically funny. Nor is this festival afraid to get serious; proceeds from the weekend will benefit Family of Woodstock, which supports victims of domestic violence and Polaris Project, a group dedicated to ending human trafficking.
