Kate Moran is honored to be a co-founder and executive producer for Asian Comedy Fest.

Asian Comedy Fest (ACF) is the longest running NYC-based international comedy fest dedicated to elevating diverse voices within the Asian and Pacific Islander community. We at Asian Comedy Fest aim to continue to grow and expand our yearly festival, bringing needed attention to a scene bursting at the seams with new and exciting API talent, as well as supporting AAPI-owned small businesses and charities.

The inaugural ACF in 2020 featured a wide array of comedic acts including superstar and AAPI icon Ronny Chieng. After raising over $8000 for the non-profit Apex for Youth in 2021, ACF returned for its third annual edition on May 6th and 7th, 2022 in New York City. Helmed by the original creative team Ed Pokropski and Kate Moran, ACF 2022 promises to continue raising the bar. Follow us @asiancomedyfest on IG, Twitter and Facebook for more updates!
