Olympia gets ready to chuckle with comedians

June 20, 2012 by  

The Olympia Comedy Festival gets underway tomorrow, June 21, continuing until Saturday at The Royal Lounge located at 311 Capitol Way North in Olympia, Washington.

Taking place over the first days of summer, the first Olympia Comedy Festival will be presented by Baurice Nelson and will showcase the top Northwest comics and a competition that may lead to the uncovering of a future comedic star.

Featured at this event is Dwight Slade, who is a previous winner from the Boston Comedy Festival competition. Called the Northwest’s “most dangerous mind,” Slade brings his own brand of cerebral and sometimes raunchy humor to the event. He has received invitations to open on the Jerry Seinfeld, Dave Chappelle, and Leno Shows. He is a frequent guest on Bob and Tom’s syndicated radio show and has been featured in a documentary film called “American: The Bill Hicks Story,” about a childhood friend and comedian. As well as Slade, Gabriel Rutledge from the Seattle International Comedy competition will make an appearance. Olympia’s Amos Mack will be the opener for this event.

Guests at this event will no doubt find themselves tittering and giggling until their sides hurt. All shows begin at 8:00 pm and the event starts off with the Olympia Comedy Competition. Tickets to this comedy festival are $10 per show per person, or $25 for a festival pass including all events during the three-day festival. Flyer printing and poster printing may have been used to advertise and promote this comedy festival. For more information, please visit the Olympia Comedy Festival website or call 360-705-0760.
