One of the Riviera Maya’s favorite annual events is back! The Akumal Comedy Festival 2015 will run from April 14 – 18 with stand-up comedy in English and in Spanish.


Despite the name, this year’s Akumal Comedy Festival won’t be limited to the Akumal area; the event will take place in all of the Riviera Maya’s top destinations, including shows in Tulum, Playa del Carmen and several areas of Akumal itself.

For its 4th year, the festival boasts a wide variety of comedic talent with nearly two dozen comedians. Mexican headliners or the event include El Cojo Feliz, Roberto Andrade and Daniel Sosa. International headliners featured at the festival include Darryl Lenox, Maggie Faris and Derek Sheen, in addition to returning fan favorites Chad Daniels, Tommy Ryman and JT Habersaat.


The Akumal Comedy Festival 2015 will kick off on Tuesday, April 14 at Mateo’s Mexican Grill in Tulum. Over the following few days, nearly a dozen comedy showcases will be held throughout the Riviera Maya, and all proceeds from the event will benefit the Mexican Red Cross.

There will also be a few Spanish-language comedy shows, perfect for Mexican comedy fans as well as international visitors who want to test their Spanish skills and have some fun!

See the full itinerary for this year’s big event on the Akumal Comedy Festival website.

You can also purchase advance show tickets now on the festival’s website, or purchase them directly with each venue as of April 1, 2015. All proceeds from the Akumal Comedy Festival will go to the Red Cross delegations based in Playa del Carmen and Tulum.
