“Comedy, we may say, is society protecting itself – with a smile.” – J.B. Priestley
There will be plenty of smiles later this week with the start of the annual Rogue Island Comedy Festival. Doug Key, the festival’s founder, and director joined me on AM 1540 WADK Newport on October 3rd to talk about the festival, its impact on the Newport area and the 69 comics that will be appearing from Thursday through Monday at a variety of Newport venues.
