From live concerts to the screening of all-time movie favorites and hilarious comedy shows, Liberty Hall in downtown Tyler has carved out a fantastic niche in East Texas as home to some very cool, very unique events. And now they are teaming up with the City of Tyler to bring us the very first East Texas Comedy Festival -- two huge days of comedy, June 15th and 16th.

Stand-up comedy takes center stage Friday, June 15th at 8 p.m. As Liberty Hall welcomes standup comics who perform regularly at nationally recognized comedy venues such as The Improv, Hyenas, Funny Bone, Backdoor Comedy and many others to battle for the title of "East Texas Funniest Comic" and you're invited to watch!

Saturday, June 16th the focus shifts from stand-up to improv comedy as Liberty Hall welcomes some of the best from around Texas and beyond. Scheduled to perform are Nikki and Ross who are regulars on the world famous stages of Second City and iO in Chicago. The same stages that started the careers of John Belushi, Steve Carrell, Tina Fey, Chris Farley, Mike Myers and many others.

The night of improv will also include Fourth Wall Comedy, comprised of some of the most seasoned improv comedians in the Dallas area. And of course the pride of the Tyler comedy scene, Card 53 will also be chipping in to make you laugh all night long.

Beverages and snacks will be made available both nights.

And in case you've ever wanted to learn how to do improv Saturday there will also be Comedy Workshops opened to anyone. These workshops aren't just for the aspiring comedians, they're also great to help improve your communication skills, sales skills, they could even help improve your getting-a-date skills!For more information about this or any show at Liberty Hall and to buy your tickets now click here.
