The Not Spring Writes Literary Festival Comedy Show

May 4 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

$10 – $15

Comedy on the Commons is back! Bringing you the best Upstate, and Central New York Comedians!

But, Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh……………….. This show is a secret!

AND, We need to make sure that YOU know The NOT Spring Writes Literary Arts Festival Comedy Show is not supported, endorsed, or sanctioned by the Spring Writes Literary Arts Festival, The Park Foundation, CAP, The Clinton Foundation, or Svante Myrick’s Tinder Account….. Ok, maybe the Mayor’s Tinder account would be down for this.

We know….. The NOT Spring Writes Literary Arts Festival Comedy Show is right dab smack in the middle of the Spring Writes Literary Arts Festival, and…. it has some of our favorite, Springy Artsy Literary people who write, as well as a touring comic or two, but is in no way associated with the Spring Writes Arts Festival.

Seriously this show is NOT associated in any way with Spring Writes….  So you don’t have to tell Robin….. Please…

But we do have some people on The NOT Spring Writes Literary Arts Festival Comedy Show who have been in, and are currently involved in this year’s Spring Writes Literary Arts Festival…… and

Hosted by Kenneth McLaurin, Ithaca’s favorite comedian!

Featuring Chris Holmes the only person who can streak standing still.  Don’t worry, this is a clothes on show. However, we have agreed that body paint is technically clothing.

Michelle Courtney Berry Berry is an author, speaker, trainer, coach, actor, performing artist, poet, nature lover, and now comedian who helps improve the quality of people’s lives by helping them manage stress, time, conflict, and competing priorities.

Michael Roberts is a storyteller and a “Trampoline” favorite. His stories are always hilarious.  Sometimes, I wonder if he puts himself in those situations just his stories will always be better than yours.

Brandon Fortunberry, only comes out once a year to do comedy, but when he comes it is waaaaaaaaay better than a Cranberry Almond Endive Cup

Closing out the show is comedian Angalia Petrillo, from Scranton PA.  Angalia, has been making a name for herself performing throughout PA, Upstate and Central NY.  She is bold, she is funny, she is pulls no punches, and she is just what the Not Spring Writes Festival Comedy Show needs.  Ithaca, get ready!
