Cape Fear Comedy Festival Showcase #12

The Cape Fear Comedy Festival features multiple stand-up comedy showcases at all of our venues throughout the festival. Reel Cafe hosts two showcases a night each night of the festival. They have been a huge supporter of comedy in Wilmington. When Nutt Street Comedy Room closed, the shows on the books were moved to Reel Cafe. The bar itself serves lots of amazing local seafood and other dinner items. So come for dinner and stay for the comedy festival shows!

This show is hosted by Brian Piccolo
