Acappella Productions has been selected as the official promoter of the New York Underground Comedy Festival 2007 by E! Entertainment TV and the David Letterman Show committee members under Sarris Productions, New York, USA. Originally started in Brooklyn in 2003, the NYUCF started as a three show affair at the Laurie Beechman Theatre. The laughs were too much for USA to carry alone, so in 2007, the festival will feature comedy shows in and across USA, Europe, Australia, China and South Africa; tallying up 100 events with the involvement of over 600 comedians around the world between Friday, 28th of September and Sunday, 7th of October. It is without question the biggest comedy festival on planet earth.

Acappella Productions launched a groundbreaking video audition competition across continental United States of America in August 2007, awarding the number one comedian, as voted by an internal panel of judges, a chance to headline the official New York Underground Comedy Festival in South Africa. A giggle under 100 comedians entered, ranging from “Last Comic Standing” winners to “Comedy Central” writers. The audition was furiously contested by rap-comedians, stand-up heroes and sketch actors, and garnered international press attention. It is with tremendous excitement that Acappella is announcing the winner as MTV “The Real World 2008” finalist, Chris Kanik. Click here to see the full comedian lineup and biographies.

Comedy Cure Charity Event
Laughter is the best and most natural form of remedy known to man. It is designed as a human instinct to protect and mend oneself on a spiritual and physical level. As part of the New York Underground Comedy Festival, Acappella is delivering comedy to the doorstep of those who are not fortunate enough to be physically or financially able to attend comedy events. The New York Underground Comedy Festival will tickle the funnybones of members of the QuadPara Association of South Africa on Tuesday, 2nd of October 2007 with a free show at the XXXXX Church Hall, providing them not only with a streak of joy in their lives, but a lesson in how to combat hardship.
