"Butch did such a fantastic job at Sag Harbor Cinema on New Year's Eve that we are back by popular demand this summer at Gurney's with the first HICF," noted Hamptons International Comedy Festival (HICF) Founder, Jason Dudek of HPR Entertainment.

This summer, Dudek has partnered with LDV Hospitality and Gurney's Montauk Resort & Seawater Spa for a two-day comedy extraganza on Thursday, May 28th and Friday, May 29th. Veteran comic Butch Bradley will headline the event and also serve as co-­producer. Bradley will be joined by comedienne Natasha Pearl Hansen, who will co-­headline the show.

Dudek and Bradley have been teaming up in the world of comedy for over a decade, including for a New Year's Eve for a Stand Up Comedy Special at the Sag Harbor Cinema, last year. The comedian, who is currently on tour, was the star of Dudek's award-winning documentary, "Open Mic," which also featured Dave Chappelle, Jim Bruer, Bobcat Goldwhait, Brian Reagan, and the late Richard Jeni. Schultz, who has acted on several television shows including "Men of a Certain Age" and "Dirt," can currently be seen performing at top New York comedy clubs as well as theaters around the country.

Natasha Pearl Hansen started her comedy career with Second City in 2007. The comedienne has performed at festivals and comedy clubs nationwide. She's also been featured on FOX, Hulu, and VH1, and starred in the single-cam pilot "Assistants."

The event will also feature Dan LaMorte, Christoper Sicoli, Leo Volf, and Shikhar Thakur.

At just 20-years-old, LaMorte has already been making a name for himself on the comedy scene, performing at the New York Comedy Club, Stand Up NY, and Caroline's on Broadway, and he made his television debut on Fox 5's "Good Day NY." This summer, he'll be amusing the troops during a U.S.O. event for those stationed at Langley Air Force base.

Sicoli took home the 2015 Bust-A-Gut Comedy Contest, and has been regularly featured at the Hidden Grounds in New Brunswick, NJ.

Volf, a New York City-based comedian, shares a love for NYC, Russia (where he was born), and New Jersey (where he grew up). Expect a few one-liners about the unique upbringing from the comedian, who was recently featured in the UCB sketch program.

Thakur has opened for the likes of Janeane Garafolo and Godfrey. A regular on the Perth, Australia comedy scene, Thakur is known for his observational and politically directed humor. The comedian was a national finalist at RAW Comedy, which is part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the largest televised open mic in Australia.
