The Akumal Comedy Festival is proud to be back for another year in the Riviera Maya, April 30 – May 3, 2014. In the past two years, the Festival has seen such acts as Chad Daniels (Comedy Central Presents, Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, The Tonight Show), Jimmy Shubert (Comedy Central Presents, “2 Broke Girls,” “The King of Queens,”), and Glenn Wool (The BBC Stand Up Show, Edinburgh Festival, “Edinburgh and Beyond” for Comedy Central). The lineup for 2014 promises to be just as star-studded.
Each year, the Akumal Comedy Festival works closely with local communities in both Akumal and the Riviera Maya at large, and all Festival proceeds go to a local charity. In 2012, the Festival’s donations helped build a playground for the children of Akumal Pueblo. In 2013, proceeds went to assist with the construction of a primary school addition for the Otoch Paal School – a school dedicated to making education affordable for all children.
The Akumal Comedy Festival is produced by Stand Up! Records, and promoted by Comedy Playa (Comedy Below Sea Level). 2014 will be the first year that the festival officially branches out into Playa del Carmen and Tulum (event times and locations to be announced).
