What is it?
The first comedy festival in Harlem!
A week long festival celebrating people of color in comedy!
The Harlem Comedy festival is a majority stand up showcase, and competition, but also highlights Improv and sketch comedy performers of color in NYC.
Why is it?
There is a severe lack of diversity in the television and film industry. We will hopefully shine a light on the comedic talent that exists in our community in order to inspire others to develop those same skills and their own goals.
