Founded in 2007 by Kevin Flynn, the Nantucket Comedy Festival is an annual summer event that brings top comedic talent to Nantucket Island as the major fundraiser for Stand Up & Learn™, an island-based, year-round comedy education program serving Nantucket’s children. The Nantucket Comedy Festival envisions Nantucket as a community connected by laughter. Please join us for the 2022 Festival on July 14-16.
Founder & Executive Director
With your help, Stand Up & Learn™ has grown leaps and bounds since last year, and we draw ever closer to our goal of developing a formal curriculum. Over the past year, the Nantucket Comedy Festival has worked with numerous curriculum specialists to help hone and enrich Stand Up & Learn‘s™ lessons and program. These educators are formalizing the great work that has already been done, and crafting a program that can be taught by many more teachers.
