The Ha Comedy Festival is taking over downtown San Antonio for its second annual event in September.

The Latinx-centric laugh fest will be held at various venues around the River Walk from September 17-19, such as the Lila Cockrell Theatre, Anacacho at St. Anthony and Tobin Center Plaza.

The festival will showcase stand-up, sketch comedy, variety and film across more than 20 shows, culminating with a live taping for HBO Max.

Featured performers include Carmen Lynch, the Comedy Chingonas — Jessica Keenan, Renee Santos, Lisa Alvarado and Luz Pazos — Chingo Bling, Fabrizio Copano and even some familiar local faces, like Paulina Chavez, who will serve as host for the "Best of the Fest" show that's being taped for HBO Max..

The inaugural Ha Comedy Festival debuted in February 2020, prior to COVID-19 shutdowns, and was broadcast on HBO Max in August 2020.

Festival organizers said on Twitter that tickets will be available in early September.
