Buzzard Bay Brewery, Gallery X to host Whale City Comedy


NEW BEDFORD — The four-day Whale City Comedy Festival kicks of on Aug. 31.

Billed as the SouthCoast’s first and only multi-day celebration of stand-up comedy, it features top comedians from around the nation who promise to deliver hilarious sets of diverse comedy styles during Labor Day weekend.

The fest features seven shows, each night with a new lineup of acts. The headlines are Anthony Devito best known for performances on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and “Comedy Central Stand Up Presents,” and Sean Donnelly best known for appearing on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.”

The Whale City Comedy Festival runs August 31 - September 3 in New Bedford.

Other comedians include Keko White, Ray Harrington, Doug Key, Rachel Williams, Gray West, Alex Quow, Mo Mussa and Emily Ruskowski.

Ashlie Thatcher, who founded Whale City Comedy in October 2022, noticed that there was not much comedy offered in New Bedford and wanted to fill that gap by bringing live comedy to the SouthCoast.
