The Akumal Comedy Festival will feature over a dozen professional comedians from the United States performing eight distinct shows in Tulum, Playa Del Carmen, and Akumal over 5 days.
The Akumal Comedy Festival will take place in four different venues in Akumal, Playa del Carmen and Tulum, from April 14th to the 18th.
The Festival is the brain child of Grammy Award winning producer and founder of Stand Up! Records Dan Schlissel and the late comedian/actor Gus Lynch (Saving Silverman, North Country, I Spy), who seek to showcase the finest professional and fastest rising stars in stand up comedy, as well as the people, restaurants, and businesses of Akumal.
Most importantly, we are here to raise money and generate awareness for important local causes and projects.
Akumal is located about 1 hour south of Cancun, between the towns of Playa Del Carmen and Tulum, and it’s about 10mins South of Puerto Aventuras. Head along the 307 Highway which is the north/south highway from Cancun to Chetumal until you see signs for “Akumal” or “Akumal Playa”.
