The Indiana Comedy Festival (ICF) is coming to Evansville in September.

10 of the comedians performing during the the 14-city, 17-show tour sponsored by Hoosier Park Racing & Casino and Heroes Vodka will be at The Centre on September 4.

The 20 professional touring comedians will be competing for a $5,000 first prize that will be awarded at the Finals on September 13 at Hoosier Park.

ICF will be headlined by DL Hughley (Dancing with the Stars, Kings of Comedy), who will perform two shows on September 14 at Hoosier Park.

Executive Producer Eric Shorts, a 14-year professional comedian of EDS Entertainment, handpicked each of the performers.

"From Boston to Vancouver, I've chosen the funniest comedians among over 120 submissions," Shorts said. "There will be plenty of laughs at every show and I'm certain the crowds will be impressed."

The three-week festival runs from August 27 to September 14 and will be stopping in several other Indiana cities, including Anderson, Columbus, Elkhart, Fort Wayne, Indianapolis, Kokomo, Lafayette, Munster, Nashville, Shelbyville, South Bend, Terre Haute and Valparaiso.
