Laughs for a good cause

Stand Up! Records is proud to present The 4th Annual Akumal Comedy Festival. The festival will take place between April 14 - April 18, 2015 in the heart of Mexico's lovely Mayan Riviera.

 

COMEDY FOR THE COMMUNITY

This completely not for profit comedy festival will feature over a dozen professional comedians from the United States performing eight shows across Tulum, Playa del Carmen, and Akumal over 5 days. The Festival is the brain child of Grammy Award winning president and founder of Stand Up! Records Dan Schlissel and comedian/actor Gus Lynch (Saving Silverman, North Country, I Spy), who seek to showcase the finest professional and fastest rising stars in stand up comedy, as well as the people, restaurants, and businesses of Akumal.  This festival will be fundraising for the Mexican Red Cross Tulum and Playa del Carmen Chapters, who are the first responders in most accidents and medical emergencies here in the Riviera Maya, and are completely self funded.

THE LINE UP

The Akumal Comedy Festival will be celebrated in 4 venues 5 days starting in Tulum on April 14, 2015. The Festival will culminate on Saturday, April 18, 2015 in Akumal featuring a "Best of the Fest" lineup, live music, regional dancers, street vendors and artists, as well as plenty of food, beverage, and alcohol options.
