The Road to the Billtown Comedy Fest

Fueled by the blossoming comedy scene in Williamsport, a group of comedians (Rasheed Wesley, Chris William, Cassidy Grae Billet, Eddie Kiersnowski, & Tim Kainzbauer), and our Executive Director, John Yogodzinski have joined together to bring a full-fledged comedy fest in April of 2020.

We are still in the planning stages and have a long road ahead, but we will be throwing a few mini comedy competitions in September and October to create awareness of the festival and also raise funds for the headliner and any venue rental fees and promotional costs we may incur while putting together the festival. All of the proceeds from each competition will go towards the 2020 festival.

If you are a fan of stand up, plan on attending the following dates to see your friends and local comics battle it out for a paid spot at the 2020 festival:
