The Nantucket Comedy Festival is a nonprofit organization founded in the summer of 2008, that seeks to engage the native and visiting Nantucket communities through the universal gift of laughter. In addition to bringing the community together to share a good laugh, our efforts serve a deeper purpose. We aim to reach out to some of the most vulnerable members of the community, our teens, through our uniquely designed educational program in comedic writing and performance, Stand Up and Learn. We hope you will join us to fully develop our program and help us positively shape kids’ lives through laughter.

Funds raised through the Nantucket Comedy Festival support Stand Up and Learn™ (formerly ProjACK Comedy) – an educational program comprised of a series of lessons using video and interactive worksheets to engage students in creative writing, communication, and critical thinking as well as team and confidence building. Stand Up and 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 at Nantucket High School, The Gateway School in New York City, the Deveraux Glenholme School in Washington, Connecticut, and at the Cape Code Conservatory.
