The event of a full moon has always been the topic of folklore, myth and legend. Scientifically, a full moon is the sun’s rays reflecting off the face of the moon. The arrival of the full moon brings a reason for a monthly celebration and to shine light on unique talents as ever changing as the night sky.
Always ready for a party, the restored Victorian-era barn of the Barn & Barrel at Mount Hope is the perfect location to showcase intimate, limited seating theatrical events. The first floor’s stonework bar offers the wine, beer, cider and spirits produced at the Estate. The second-floor event space overlooking Mount Hope’s award-winning full production winery provides a cozy theater space to enjoy new events brought to the barn in celebration of the monthly Full Moon Fest at the Barn & Barrel.
The first four Full Moon Fests will feature Comedy Nights that will keep you laughing through the dark and cold winter months. Instead of howling at the full moon, grab your friends, share a chuckle and be reminded why laughter is the best medicine!

Chris Coccia’s act is a perfect combination of hilarious material and the ability to present it “in the moment”. Flowing seamlessly between material and improvised interaction with the crowd, Chris is able to open the audience up as he pulls them into a shared recognition of our own human-ness.

Although Jennifer Espenshade has been doing standup comedy for only a few years, she has been entertaining crowds for the past 25 years as a performer at the PA Renaissance Faire, doing comedy in a giant pit of mud! Her transition from improv and mud pit diving to standup seemed like a natural progression, plus standup is much more forgiving on her aging body!
