Nantucket Comedy Festival Presents Stand Up & Learn

Thursday, Friday & Saturday, March 15–17, the Nantucket Comedy Festival presents our popular Stand Up & Learn Winter Workshop and Professional Comedy Series.  Executive Director Kevin Flynn will be on island to conduct the workshops for Stand Up & Learn, a comedy education program for young people ages 8–18.  An initiative of the Nantucket Comedy Festival, Stand Up & Learn enables island children to build self-confidence while learning to create and perform original stand-up comedy.  Children can choose to perform in a special kids’ show on Saturday evening at the Dreamland, and even return in the summer for Stand Up & Learn’s Kids’ Night on Wednesday, July 11. 

Workshops for this session will take place in the Dreamland Studio Theater, 17 South Water Street, on Thursday and Friday, March 15–17 from 3:30–5 p.m. and on Saturday, March 17 from 10 a.m.–12 p.m., followed by a children’s performance at 5 p.m. put on by the workshop participants.  Please sign up soon, as this class will be limited to a maximum of fifteen children.  All children’s workshops are free to participants. Saturday evening at 7:00, a professional stand up comedy show (for ages 18 and over) in the Dreamland’s main theater will feature Ken Rogerson. 

To sign up for Stand Up & Learn workshops, or for more information, please email Alyssa Corry,

Kids’ Performance Time: Saturday, March 17 at 5:00 p.m.—FREE, but please reserve your tickets online at or at the Nantucket Dreamland Box Office.
