Comedy Festival Preview Showcase

Joe Hannum
The first-ever Cleveland Comedy Festival, a four-day yukfest showcasing "famously funny people from Cleveland, who'll share the spotlight with aspiring locals and proven touring pros," is coming to town in October. We can't confirm yet if Cleveland-bred crack-ups Drew Carey or Martin Mull will headline the shows. But we can tell you that Joe Hannum and company will stage a Comedy Festival Preview Showcase at Hilarities East 4th Street Theatre on March 12. Click here for tickets. — Cris Glaser
