The Nantucket Comedy Festival, under the direction of comedian Kevin Flynn, was developed to bring top comedic performances to Nantucket in support of the local youth community.

Proceeds benefit the festival’s associated non-profit, Stand Up & Learn, an educational program that has been implemented in Nantucket-area schools to encourage confidence and comedic self-expression through creative writing.

The program provides a series of videos and interactive worksheets, giving teachers and students the tools they need to begin writing and practicing stand-up comedy in their classrooms.

Stand Up & Learn

SULAbout

Stand Up & Learn (formerly ProjACK Comedy) is an educational program comprised of a series of lessons using video and interactive worksheets that engages students in creative writing, communication, and critical thinking as well as team and confidence building.

Stand Up & Learn is the first stand-up comedy program developed for high school students, with an emphasis on writing comedic stories and bits.

The program is currently being implemented with Nantucket students, The Gateway School in New York City, the Deveraux Glenholme School in Washington, Connecticut, and at the Cape Cod Conservatory.

We rely on the support of our donors to continue providing year-round Stand Up & Learn programs for kids. Please consider a donation:
