Comedy Festivals Currently Taking Submissions
As we have stated before, we fully support other indie comedy festivals. You can find out how to submit to them and more info about each festival below. If you have a festival that isn’t listed here, please comment or send us a message!
Remember, my tip for being accepted to a comedy festival is to have a HIGH QUALITY video of you performing in front of an audience that is laughing at your jokes. Sounds obvious, right? Well, you would not believe how many open mic sets with no audience people submit.
