Wednesday, July 11 – Each year, the Nantucket Comedy Festival kicks off with the Kids’ Comedy Performance where kids from the Stand Up & Learn™ Children’s Education Program perform original comedic material that they wrote, rehearsed and developed themselves. Seasoned professional comedians offer notes and encouragement while the kids gain experience in public speaking, creative writing and self-confidence. The Nantucket Comedy Festival is the premier fundraiser for Stand Up & Learn™, so come out to see these talented kids. It’s free!
