Inspired by the spirit of outdoor music festivals, comedian Bert Kreischer's Fully Loaded Comedy Festival is a groundbreaking and uproarious celebration of laughter, bringing together top comedic talents for unforgettable performances in unique outdoor settings, creating a new era of comedy entertainment that's as wild and memorable as the man himself.
I put this festival together so that you can have the best evening of your life. I want you to see the best comedy you could ever see... I wanted it to be outdoors… the beer cold, you’re with the ones you love… I’ll plan the party, all you gotta do is show up!
Four days of stand-up sets, live podcast recordings, late night music, and even opportunities to hang with your favorite comedians! Thank you to everyone who joined us aboard Fully Loaded at Sea! Sixthman and Bert are working together on future plans! Stay tuned for details on future adventures!
The 2023 festival kicked off on June 14 at Forest Hills Stadium in New York and wrapped up at The Gorge at George in Washington on September 15. The festival showcases an impressive array of talent, from comedy giants Bert Kreischer, Tiffany Haddish, and Dave Attell to the fresh faces of Ralph Barbosa and Mark Smalls, reflecting the full spectrum of today's comedy scene.
While on the road for the 2020 Hot Summer Nights Tour, performing at drive-in venues amid the pandemic, Bert was struck by the allure of open-air comedy gigs. This new-found love was the catalyst for the Fully Loaded Comedy Festival. In the spirit of Lollapalooza, Bert envisioned a festival that would encapsulate all of his favorite elements: laughter, the great outdoors, conviviality, and enjoying drinks with friends, all meant to offer a shared experience that would resonate with fans long after.
The Fully Loaded Comedy Festival proudly supports Comedy Gives Back.
