About this project

The JC Comedy Festival will be a week long event held throughout Jersey City featuring some of the east coast's best comedians and performers.  Jersey City plays host to many regular comedy shows all year long, and this festival will be a showcase for both the local comedy talent and the city itself and it's burgeoning arts, culture, and nightlife scene.  Over the course of 6 nights, the JCCF will be hosting about 20 different comedy shows, in nearly a dozen different venues, with over 75 different comedians performing.

Risks and challenges

We have already booked venues in Jersey City so our "biggest challenge" would be coordinating all the talent and advertising the festival. We regularly produce shows in New York City and New Jersey, however,for a festival of this size, we will need a much larger budget to guarantee that we have the money and manpower to secure the best talent, coordinate and produce every show, and properly publicize this unique, first of it's kind event for Jersey City and the surrounding area.
