Says Scalia “As a Salem resident and a comedian, we love bringing the craft of comedy home and making people laugh. This Festival gives me the opportunity to raise everyone’s spirit in winter. And, by bringing in comics from all over the U.S., locals get to experience variety in their own backyard.”
