Tickle Your Funny Bone with Some Help from the Memphis Urban Laughs Comedy Festival

Have you needed a good laugh lately? The Urban Laughs Comedy Festival celebrates all forms and aspects of urban comedy. It brings together the finest local, out of town and nationally known comics at one time to showcase their talents, network with one another, and enjoy the beautiful city of Memphis.

The festival takes place over 4 days in different venues over the city of Memphis. Each night will feature showcases with comics from our submission process while being hosted by local comics and headlined by comics known nationwide. Showcases include Just Fab Comedy Showcase, Dripping in Jokes Comedy Showcase, and Censored Laughs Comedy Showcase. There will also be a plethora of workshops to keep the entertainment going throughout the weekend.

The Urban Laughs Comedy Festival was founded by LaToya Tennille, a comedienne, host, writer, and entrepreneur. She is the first female in Memphis to find a major, African American centered comedy event. Her accolades include being featured on Kevin Hart’s “Hart of the City on Comedy Central and winning “Best Female Comedian” at the 2017 Artsy awards and Artist of the Year in 2018. This Memphis native uses comedy camps and events to give back to the youth and unite people with laughter.
