Comedy Classic Weekend Package at Omni Grove Park Inn

Live and laugh it up in Asheville, North Carolina, February 24-26, 2017.
21 Plus Salute!

By Hope S. Philbrick

For the 28th year, the hills will be enlivened with the sound of laughter when the Omni Grove Park Inn hosts its annual Comedy Classic weekend, February 24-26, 2017.

This gem of a resort nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Asheville, North Carolina—one of our favorite adults-oriented communities—hosts the comedy weekend to help beat the winter blahs.

In 2017, the guest comedians include headliners Roy Wood, Jr. and Michael Kosta plus Aaron Kleiber, Michael Palascak, Gina Brillion, Joe List, Greg Warren and others.

Performers are selected by a panel of judges who review taped performances submitted months in advance; while the final roster represents a mix of comedians, all are very funny.

“Each year we go through hundreds of vetted comedians who are on the rise of their careers to select the group who will perform for Comedy Classic weekend,” says Tracey Johnston-Crum, director of public relations and community outreach for the Omni Grove Park Inn. “Our goal is to secure great talent just as they are beginning to gain national recognition in order that our guests see the next big comedian before their big break.”

“This year we have a solid line up to appeal to a group that really wants to have fun,” she says. “There will be great wit, clever observations, and even a little physical comedy to add to the levity. And don’t forget the best, exclusive perk to being a package holder: Package guests get a Q&A session on Saturday afternoon with the comedians to find out who they are and what makes them tick.”

The weekend package includes two nights of luxurious accommodations, two tickets to each of the two nights of hilarious comedic performances, two tickets to the Comedy Panel (where the guest comedians answer audience questions), breakfast for two each morning, and overnight parking.

21 Plus Salute! To attend a comedy performance, you must be age 21 or older.

My husband and I attended the Comedy Classic weekend in February 2016 and had a blast. If you like comedy clubs, this is even better: Just as many laughs, but the floors and tables aren’t sticky.
