Finally, we want to thank everyone who submitted to perform at the 2015 Brooklyn Comedy Festival. All accepted performers have been notified. If you did not get accepted this year, it isn’t because we don’t think you’re funny! As we continue to grow each year and add more venues, we will be able to accept more people from the submission process. Thanks again, and congratulations to everyone who was accepted! See you all in August!
