A comedy triple threat is heading for the shores of Falmouth this October featuring stand up, musical comedy and a mind blowing psychic comedy show. Comic actor Matty Blake, fresh off his appearances on “NBC’s 30 Rock” and HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” will host the comedy festival which begins Friday Night with the “Trials of Love” featuring Boston comedians and headliner Mike Dorval. Saturday Night has a double bill featuring comedy band “World Gone Crazy: The Comedic Rock & Roll Circus” and frequent White House performer and mind reader / comedian Jon Stetson.
The Nauset Conference Center at the newly renovated Sea Crest Beach Hotel will serve as the host location for this unique and diverse comedy line up of theme shows. The official website is www.capecodcomedyfest.com.
“These are all fresh, funny and entertaining comedy acts you won’t find at any other comedy festivals or resorts” says Festival Producer Gary Marino. “We are so excited to partner with WMVY and The Sea Crest to bring these acts to the Cape’s first comedy festival”.
Festival Headliner Jon Stetson is the inspiration for the main character on CBS TV show “The Mentalist”. His audience interactive show, known as “The Stetson Experience”, is a hysterical combination of unique sleight-of-mind entertainment and mind-to-mind psychic contact. Part magician, part mind reader and always a side splitting comedian, Jon Stetson has performed for Donald Trump, The King Of Sweden and Presidents Bush, Carter and Obama.
World Gone Crazy was launched in early 2011 to rave reviews and includes one of the most inventive live shows seen in recent times featuring rapid fire rock & roll song parodies, spoofs of TV commercials and side splitting impressions all performed by a 4 piece band of comedians. Created by Gary Marino (ABC’s “Live With Regis & Kelly” and “Million Calorie March: The Movie”) and Boston comedian and radio producer Michael Coleman, World Gone Crazy: The Comedic Rock & Roll Circus will close out the festival with a bang on October 20.
Fresh from its successful run at the Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater, The Trials Of Love is a live comedy court room hosted by Boston Headliner Mike Dorval a.k.a. The Love Judge.
Dorval helps lucky couples settle their domestic differences on stage with the help of friends, relatives, witnesses, and the audience. Come see The Love Judge turn domestic disputes into an explosion of candy and kisses!
Special guests are still being added to the line up and the festival will be hosted by comic actor Matty Blake, host of the NBC Sports Matty Blake Show and his former radio show “Rocko & Matty” on WAAF. Matty has been seen on NBC’s 30 Rock, VH1 and MTV.
The Cape Cod Comedy Festival is a partnership between WMVY Radio, Harmon-Marino Entertainment and The Sea Crest Beach Hotel. A handful of Cape Cod and Boston charities will benefit from the event including the Buzzards Bay Coalition, New England Chapter of MS, Falmouth Dog Park, Mashpee Children’s Museum, Tea Ticket PTA, Generation Excel and others.
