The selected comics from a pool of hundreds of submissions will compete in five competition showcases, and audiences will be able to vote for their favorite comedian at each showcase in order to advance them to the finale on June 15th. Two winners from each showcase (audience pick + industry pick) are selected to perform in the final competition where they can win cash prizes and spots at local clubs. Headliners for the festival include Rachel Feinstein and Kyle Gordon.

“The Jersey City Comedy Festival returns with an exciting lineup featuring comics from across the nation. We’re thrilled to have Kyle Gordon return as a headliner, following his previous appearance as an opener in 2018.
