It’s no joke—the Gold Coast Arts Center (GCAC) is hosting the 10th annual Long Island Comedy Festival, just in time for April Fools Day. Following last year’s sold-out show, the festival will be returning with a brand new lineup of top comedians from Long Island, the New York City comedy scene and beyond, ready to take the stage and bring some laughter on this widely recognized day of pranks and fun.
It’s going to be a Meatballs & Matzoh Balls event with performances from top Italian and Jewish comedians, featuring George Rini, Tyler Gildin and Frankie Pace.
Rini is a local comedian and comic host who has performed all over the Island. Gildin is a native Long Islander and a NYC-based stand-up comedian who has opened for comedy greats like Gilbert Gottfried. Pace is a national headliner and has worked with many comedy legends, and is also one of only seven comedians to have performed his act on Saturday Night Live. Special guest comedians will round out the full lineup of hilarious comics who will make this April Fools Day one to remember—for all the right reasons.
The April Fools Comedy Show will be performed at the Gold Coast Arts Center, 113 Middle Neck Rd. in Great Neck, on Friday, April 1. The doors will open at 8 p.m. and the show will begin at 8:30 p.m. Special presale tickets are $10 while they last; the regular price is $20.
