Dates Announced for 3rd Annual Akumal Comedy Festival

The dates for the 3rd Annual Akumal Comedy Festival have been announced!
The festival will take place in the beautiful village of Akumal from May 1-3, 2014.

This completely free comedy festival will feature professional comedians from the United States and Canada performing venues in Akumal and along the Riviera Maya over three 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.
