Rhode Island’s Rogue Island Comedy Festival brings five days of non-stop laughter and more than 60 different comics to Newport, October 5th through the 9th, 2017.

The annual Rogue Island Comedy Festival is Rhode Island’s only comedy festival and one that no fan of live comedy should miss. More than 60 comedians from across the US will be on hand! Mark Normand, Sydnee Washington, Amber Nelson, Christi Chiello, Nick Vatterott, Sean Sullivan, and headliner T.J. Miller are just the tip of the iceberg. Audiences will be treated to comedians seen on Comedy Central, Inside Amy Schumer, America’s Got Talent, Conan, The Late Late Show, and many more!

The event takes place at a variety of venues around Newport and includes a PG-13 matinee as well as two BYOB shows. Tickets for individual shows are available online, as is a Full Festival Pass – but they are going FAST. If you’ve any intention of going, the time to get you tickets and accommodations is now, before they’re all snapped up.

Speaking of accommodations … there’s no place like home and, when you’re on Rhode Island, the next best thing to home are the Inns & Bed and Breakfasts of Newport County! Why stay in some cold, stale, and impersonal hotel or motel room when you can bask in the luxury and service of a Newport County B&B? Newport County B&B’s are locally owned and operated, meaning you’re being served by someone who knows the area. What better way to learn about all the great things to do on Rhode Island – and which to avoid. Book your room today!
