MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - A new festival is coming to Marquette this November that will highlight some of the best stand-up comedians in the region.

The Stand UP Comedy Festival will take place at the Ore Dock Brewing Company, Nov. 3-5 in Marquette.

“It makes sense to have a comedy festival in this great city that hosts many great festivals throughout the year,” said Co-Organizer Vincent Schultz. “Our long-term vision is to make this festival a top regional comedy festival that draws some of the best stand-up talent in the country. We have such a great lineup in the works for the inaugural event. It’s going to be a great 3 days of stand-up comedy in Marquette.”

The event will consist of 6 shows featuring twelve of the best stand-up comedians in the country.

“Stand-up comedy is an art, and Marquette is rich with its support of all the arts. Why not have an annual comedy festival right here in the Upper Peninsula?” said Co-organizer Bryan Sromalski.
