The Brooklyn Comedy Festival will be accepting performer submissions for 2016 starting Monday, March 14th. Early bird submissions will be $20 March 14-27. That price will increase to $25 until submissions close on April 10th.
To submit, you will need to provide a link to an unedited performance video up to five minutes long.
The performance dates for the 2016 Brooklyn Comedy Festival are August 22-27.
Please note that we will not be accepting submissions for improv and sketch this year. The festival is still committed to featuring the best improv and sketch around, however those mediums aren’t conducive to video submissions. We are working in conjunction with theaters and people within the comedy community to seek out the best rising talent in these categories. (And we go to A LOT of shows!)
More FAQ can be found at the bottom of the submission form HERE when it goes live.
HUGE THANKS to all of the attendees, performers, venues, sponsors, and friends that made #BKCF
2015 a success! We had a blast, and we hope you did too. Looking
forward to 2016, and stay tuned for info on our December 2015 holiday
party + comedy show!
Had a great time last night with our friends at Broken Comedy!
SAVE THE DATE! On Thursday, August 13th,
we will be having our annual ART SHOW AND PRE-FESTIVAL PARTY. FREE
admission and FREE cocktails. Location TBA. Sign up for our mailing list HERE, and stay tuned to our website, Facebook, and Twitter for updates.
Also, Brooklyn Comedy Festival is currently looking for interns to work with us during the 2015 festival! Info on how to apply can be found HERE.
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!
