Tickets are now on sale for the 2020 Salem Comedy & Spirits Festival. Now in its fifth year, the three-day festival will run Thursday January 16th – Saturday January 18th, and features seventeen different comedians at two popular Salem venues: East Regiment Beer Company and Deacon Giles Distillery. The Festival celebrates the craft of comedy both for the audience as well as for the seasoned comedians performing each night.
“Hitting our fifth year is a milestone that we’re very proud and excited about” say Festival producer and comedian Mark Scalia. “Four shows are the most we’ve ever produced and having a great new venue onboard – East Regiment Beer Company – always brings energy. And this year our job was difficult as we received over 150 submissions and vetted it down to 16 comics. Many of this year’s performers have television credits and are winners from other national and international comedy competitions. All of these talented comics are from across the US and Canada… there’s something for everyone.”
Scalia will be hosting all three nights. Thursday takes place at East Regiment Beer Company at 8pm, Friday and Saturday are at Deacon Giles Distillery with one show on Friday at 9pm and Saturday at 7pm and 9.30pm.
Salem Comedy & Spirits Festival tickets are now on sale. Early booking highly suggested.
Says Scalia “As a comedian and Salem resident, I love to offer something back to the city. I also love to make people laugh. This Festival gives me the opportunity to raise everyone’s spirit in winter. And, by bringing in comics from all over the country, locals get to experience variety in their own backyard. This festival continues to be one of the high points of my year.”
