The submission period for the 2018 festival is May 30th - July 15th at 11:59pm. We are a STAND UP festival, primarily. We have weird shit sometimes, but whatever video you submit needs to be of you doing stand up comedy, ideally in front of an audience, and this is a big deal: WHERE WE CAN BOTH HEAR AND SEE YOU. Anyone submitting to be a part of the festival needs to understand the following:
The festival runs October 18-20, and you will need to physically be in the Twin Cities to take part in the festival. Seeing that you live here we’re hoping this should be easy for you.
Selections are announced no later than September 1st, or earlier TBD by festival producers. It's understood you MAY NOT COMMUNICATE YOUR SELECTION STATUS UNTIL TOLD OTHERWISE BY FESTIVAL PRODUCERS.
We do nearly all showcase shows - locals usually get on 1-2 shows during the festival - we try and make sure it’s not just some stupid theme show, but sometimes that happens. C'est la vie.
Don’t be stupid and say you live in the Twin Cities when you don’t. That would be a pretty big dick move.
