The group organizing the Orlando Indie Comedy Fest have released all of the names of the comics that will be performing in town during the weekend of Sept. 25-28. In addition to national comic Kyle Kinane, who will be performing at Will's Pub on Saturday, Sept. 27, the festival will feature 30 visiting up-and-coming comedians and 20 locals. Local names include Tom Feeney, Nick Pupo, Alex Luchun, Matt Gersting, Marie George and Sarah Nowak. The full lineup can be found at their site. Tickets for the entire weekend can be purchased for only $25, but there are only about 40 left. Once those are gone, individual showcases will run anywhere from $5 to $15 and you'll have to wait to see how many passholders show up first to find out whether you'll be able to get a ticket for an individual show. Half of the proceeds from the festival will go to the National Alliance on Mental Illness of Greater Orlando, which is sadly poignant after the death of Robin Williams earlier this week. Here are some clips from some of our favorite visiting comedians that we've checked out so far: Ryan Schutt, from Washington, D.C.
