Comedians from across the country are coming to the coast for the fourth-annual Cannon Beach Comedy Festival, March 8th and 9th.

Headliners include: Atlanta’s Baron Vaughn, Denver’s Adam Cayton-Holland, Los Angeles’ Eddie Pepitone and New York City’s Cholë Radcliffe.

Indeed, it’s an incredible lineup that also includes numerous of the northwest’s best stand ups.

The two-day fest takes place at the Coaster Theatre in Cannon Beach. Tickets are available at

As a stand-up comedian, Baron Vaughn has been entertaining audiences for more than 20 years. He has two influential comedy recordings, Raised by Cable and Blaxistential Crisis, both available for streaming on all platforms. As an actor, Baron is best known as “Bud,” sharing the screen with Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin on the longest-running hit Netflix series, Grace & Frankie. Baron lends his voice as “Tom Servo” in the recent seasons of cult-hit, Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Adam Cayton-Holland is a national touring comic who has appeared on CONAN, WTF with Marc Maron, Comedy Central Presents, The Late Late Show with James Corden, @midnight, The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, and more. He has been named one of Esquire magazine’s “25 Comics to Watch” and one of “10 Comics to Watch” by Variety. Along with his cohorts in The Grawlix, Adam created, wrote, and starred in “Those Who Can’t,” which aired for three seasons on truTV.

Nicknamed “The Bitter Buddha,” Eddie Pepitone is a master of the dark art of comedy. Eddie is hailed as a modern day cross between Jackie Gleason, Don Rickles and Eckart Tolle. On stage, Eddie is a force of nature, switching between social rage and tender self-doubt. His shows are an energetic combo of calm and chaos, blue-collar angst and sardonic enlightenment. Few comedians working today channel the power of the rant better than Eddie Pepitone.

Chloë Radcliffe is a NYC-based standup comic, actor, and writer. She starred in COMMAND Z from Steven Soderbergh. Her Comedy Central: Featuring set debuted in 2022. She staffed on the sketch writing team for The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon from 2019-2020. She was named a TBS Comic To Watch at the New York Comedy Festival, has been seen on Epix, and was selected for NBC’s 2019 Late Night Writers Workshop. She produces Minneapolis’ 10,000 Laughs Comedy Festival.

And if that isn’t enough talent, the Cannon Beach Comedy Festival boasts some of Portland’s best comedians, including “Portland’s Funniest Person” award winner Arlo Weierhauser, madcap multi-media maestro Phil Schallberger, Portland Mercury “Undisputable Genius of Comedy” Amanda Arnold, longtime tortured Trail Blazer fan Seth Allen and more.

The Cannon Beach Comedy Festival is produced by the nonprofit Tolovana Arts Colony and made possible by a grant from the City of Cannon Beach’s Tourism and Arts Fund (it’s what makes these tickets so affordable).
