Loretta LaRoche Productions will present its second annual Plymouth Rock Comedy Festival, showcasing four nights of comedic entertainment, Oct. 12-15 throughout various Plymouth locations. The four-day event will showcase some of the area’s funniest comedians displaying their material in a live, uncut forum.

Oct. 12, the festival kicks off with the “Ruffle Your Feathers” contest, in which six comedians – narrowed down from 20 by a public online voting forum – compete against each other for the number one spot. A panel of judges will determine the winner, who will receive the Turkey Egg trophy and become the opening comedic act for an upcoming LLP production. Hosted by comedian Dave Russo, this event will take place at Martini’s Bar and Grill at 8 p.m., and is free to the public.

The festival will continue Oct. 13 with the “He Said/She Said” Battle of the Sexes. Held at the Radisson Hotel at 8 p.m., this show highlights the age-old battle of man vs. woman. Four comedians will storm each other on stage and the audience gets to decide the winner.

The most outrageous event, “Raw Comedy,” will take place Oct.14 at Cabby Shack. This is a 21-plus show in which comedians unleash their most uncensored opinions on stage for two shows, at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m.

The main event and ultimate comedic throw-down will occur at Plimoth Plantation Oct. 15, at which comedians will honor one recipient in a tell-all, candid forum. This year’s recipient will receive the coveted “Ruffled Feather Award,” developed by LLP to recognize and commend the unique achievements of talented individuals who have made a positive impact in the world. This event will be follow a free afternoon of prizes and games hosted by Loretta LaRoche Productions at Plimoth Plantation.

The Plymouth Rock Comedy Festival was founded by Loretta LaRoche Productions to stitch together comedic talents and showcase them live. The festival is working in partnership with many Plymouth venues and benefits the Plimoth Plantation. More information, schedules and tickets are available at plymouthrockcomedyfestival.com.
