The Block Island Summer Comedy Series returns to Yellow Kittens on Sunday, July 15 at 8 p.m. This is the second of four shows throughout the summer, future dates being Sunday, Aug. 26 and Sunday, Oct. 7. This particular show features the biggest name brought to the island thus far — Jessimae Peluso. Peluso was a cast member on MTV’s Girl Code, E!’s Chelsea Lately, and Comedy Central’s @Midnight. Peluso is an internationally touring comedian who will be bringing her act in August to the iconic Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland. Peluso has also amassed an impressive social media following of over 700,000 followers on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
Joining Peluso will be comedians Marty Caproni — who headlined last July’s show at Yellow Kittens — and Alan Moreau. The show is produced and hosted by former year-round resident and aspiring comic Ben Smith. Smith traditionally opens the show with material specific to island life, then brings up professional comedians to the Yellow Kittens stage.
Tickets are only $10 and will be available at the door. Seating starts at 8 p.m. and the show starts at 8:30 p.m.
