Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The Binghamton Comedy Fest will be spreading laughter throughout Binghamton for the second time.

Nearly 50 comedians will be coming to the area later this summer.

One of headlining comedians, Kurt Metzger has been on Comedy Central, Showtime, NBC and the Last Comic Standing.

"I've heard people talk about this areas as it if were depleted and dying. I don't see it that way and I think comedy, if it's approached positively in this area, that might lend some perspective about ya know, being here," said organizer Kevin Salisbury.

Comedy Fest will run from Sept. 12 to Sept. 14. Tickets in advance will cost $7.
