August 23, 2018 - First Annual San Diego World Comedy Jam™ Launches Sales Today

San Diego-based international comedy festival focuses on restoring social tolerance through multicultural comedic arts.

San Diego, CA -- The first annual San Diego World Comedy Jam, featuring comedic artists from across the globe will run Friday, October 12 through Sunday, October 14, 2018 at the World Beat Center in Balboa Park. 

Establishing the San Diego World Comedy Jam at a comedic level on par with such giants as The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Montreal International Comedy Festival and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival is the vision of Gary Wolf, CEO of Gary Wolf Entertainment, LLC.


“The truth is, San Diego has everything necessary to become the fulcrum of the international comedy circuit”, says Wolf, the event’s producer and working comedian. “San Diego has great weather, beautiful beaches, an international airport, and of course a highly efficient border crossing”, he laughs.  “Having performed in and produced comedy in many countries I am dumbfounded there isn’t a major international comedy festival in the United States. The time has come for the greatest and most socially diverse country in the world to have the greatest and most diverse comedy festival in the world.”


Headlining this year’s inaugural comedy event is Hungarian-born San Diegan, Zoltan Kaszas. Featured acts include Chris James (England), Fabio Rabin (Brazil), Steven Garza (USA), and Gary Wolf himself (South Africa). Tickets are $35 and can be purchased at  Event updates will also be posted on Facebook
