Rhode Island’s only stand-up comedy festival, The Rogue Island Comedy Festival, returns Thursday October 10 – Monday October 14, 2019 to Newport! And we’re headed into our fifth year with a brand-new lineup of comics from around the country! Held annually over Columbus Day Weekend, this years’ festival has expanded to sixteen shows at multiple venues throughout Newport – including The Jane Pickens Theater, Top of Pelham, Gurney’s Resort, and the Firehouse Theater.
Rogue will showcase headliners Sean Patton (Comedy Central, CONAN), Corey Rodrigues (CONAN, truTV, Dry Bar Comedy), Alyssa Limperis (HBO's Last Week Tonight), and Mia Jackson (Comedy Central), as well as over fifty other nationally and locally-known comedians. This year’s festival will also feature two live podcasts - ‘Two Less Lonely Girls’ with Rosebud Baker (Comedy Central) and Corinne Fisher (Guys We F%&#ed podcast), and popular local podcast ‘Wicked Funny’ with host Brian Beaudoin!
Created and produced by native Rhode Islanders Doug Key and Katie Latimer, the Rogue Island Comedy Festival brings the best of emerging and nationally known comedians to Rhode Island, and allow audiences to enjoy the range of a large comedy festival lineup, while still experiencing the atmosphere of intimate venues.
General festival shows are $20 in advance.
