The headlining comedian at the 7th annual Laugh Your Asheville Off comedy festival will be Rory Scovel. Scovel will be taking the stage on Wednesday, August 14th at The Altamont Theater.
Comedians Marc Maron and Bill Burr are still my favorite comics, but Rory is quickly becoming one of my all time favorite comedians.
Scovel’s shows are always a hit in Asheville and Hollywood tends to agree with Asheville audiences as Scovel just landed two television deals. ABC is developing a family comedy around Scovel and TBS cast Rory for their new comedy pilot Ground Floor.
Here is one of my favorite clips of Scovel performing at the Moontower Comedy Festival in Austin, Texas:
If the Scovel announcement is a sign for things to come for Laugh Your Asheville Off comedy festival, which is held August 13-August 17, this year’s comedy festival should be off the charts.
