What we need after all we've been through in New Jersey is a summer of fun and thanks to all these hysterical comedians coming to the Garden State this summer, we shall have one.

There's also great comedy going on every weekend at places like The Stress Factory in New Brunswick, Catch A Rising Star in the Princeton Hyatt Regency, The Comedy Cove at Scotty's Steakhouse in Springfield , and Uncle Vinny's Comedy Club in Point Pleasant, not to mention the various comedy nights at the many different bars and restaurants.

Wherever you go, do yourself a favor and go see some live comedy this summer. You'll be glad you did. Here are some of the big names coming to New Jersey this summer.
