4th Annual Hoboken Comedy Festival to Feature Artie Lange October 2nd through 6th 2013

You will really be able to laugh it up in Hoboken coming soon: Artie Lange will be featured in Hoboken’s 4th annual Comedy Festival October 2nd through the 6th.

4th Annual Hoboken Comedy Festival

to feature Artie Lange in October

Hoboken Comedy Festival  2013If you attended last year’s sold out Hoboken Comedy Festival, you may have noticed the unannounced cameos, the star studded lineup and the five days of comedy contribution to the city of Hoboken. In 2013 you should expect that and more–according to Festival Coordinator Dan Frigolette.  This year Howard Stern Alum and Hoboken Resident Artie Lange will close the Festival at the Pilsener Haus on Hoboken’s 14th Street.

The festival takes place October 2nd-6th all throughout Hoboken New Jersey, and brings with it headliners: Andrew Schulz from Guy Code, Thomas Dale from Chelsea Lately, Chuck Nice from the Today Show, Jessimae Peluso from Girl Code, and as mention Artie Lange from the Artie Lange Show along with two dozen feature comedians seen and heard all throughout your televisions and radios.

If you’re an aspiring act, it’s not too late to submit yourself to perform in front of industry leaders, decision makers and for a chance to open up for Artie Lange. All you need is a 6 minute YouTube clip and a headshot. To submit check out www.HobokenFestival.com/Submit.

Beyond the laughs, humor and alcohol consumption that comes with any comedy night, you can add the feel good element of supporting local charities. Each year the Hoboken Comedy Festival donates money to a partnering charity.

For the second year in a row, the Liberty Humane Society who supports dog adoption services, and low cost veterinary clinics all throughout Hudson County will be the partner organization. In 2012 the Hoboken Comedy Festival raised over $1200 for the charity.

In 2013 Hoboken Comedy Festival will supply LHS with comedian Justin Silver of CBS’s Dogs in the City for their Annual Bark in the Park Event in Hoboken’s Church Square Park on October 6th, and will be donating ticket proceeds, direct donations and calendar sales from the festival to the non-profit organization based in Jersey City NJ.

“The Hoboken Comedy Festival is a celebration of Hoboken’s Entertainment Independence” says Frigolette of the venture, “supporting local businesses and charities are the tenets that created the event.” This year half a dozen local businesses will sponsor the festival and the promotion photo shoot featuring famous comedians interacting with adoptable dogs at notable Hoboken locations.

Mayor Dawn Zimmer recognized the Hoboken Comedy Festival as “one of the latest additions to Hoboken’s vibrant cultural and arts scene.”
