Woodstock Comedy Festival 

sl_colinquinn0452.jpg

Laughter is the best medicine, and Woodstock is about to get a healthy dose. The Woodstock Comedy Festival will take over the village for its second year from Friday, September 19 through Sunday, September 21. Friday night opens with Comedy Nation, featuring comedians riffing on political topics and holding a panel discussion at the Woodstock Playhouse. Writers from "Late Night with Seth Meyers" and Upright Citizens Brigade will host Saturday panels on comedy writing, advertising, and video production. UCB variety show Whiplash promises some surprise celebrity appearances Saturday night at the Bearsville Theater. And the festival closes Sunday with documentary screenings at Upstate Films and an evening of local standup at the Colony Café. Programs start a 8pm on Friday and noon on Saturday and Sunday, and all proceeds will benefit Family of Woodstock and Polaris Project. Woodstockcomedyfestival.org.
