City Steam and The Brew HaHa Present: Linda Belt- Featured comic at The Boston Comedy Festival

with Gene Trifilo and Lori Palminteri

Linda Belt is a New Jersey native (a comedy routine in itself). She moved to CT in 1987 where she became a suburban pillar of the community attending PTO meetings and baseball games. Linda became very tired holding up that pillar and instead holds her own as a professional stand up comic. Her humor touches on the absurdities of modern life and explores marriage, sex, parenting and social mores, in other words: any subject she feels like discussing!

Linda has performed throughout the US and Canada and has been featured in a number of comedy festivals, including the Hogtown Comedy Festival (Toronto) the Detroit Comedy Festival, the Long Island Comedy Festival and the Boston Comedy Fest. Her many venues have included: Tropicana (Atlantic City) Mohegan Sun, Turning Stone Casino, Comedy Studio (Boston), NY Improv, the Broadway Comedy Club (NYC) & The Laugh Factory (NYC) as part of the “Broads of Broadway” show, Yuk Yuks International: Toronto & Halifax, Brew Ha Ha Comedy Club at City Steam (Hartford), Governor’s Comedy Club (Long Island) and Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle (Detroit), Magooby's (Baltimore), Comedy Zone (Various Locations), Royal Caribbean Cruiselines. As a full-time working comic, she can be found at various local & national venues, fundraisers and corporate events.
