10,000 Laughs is back for year eight and better than ever!

Early Submission Fees run until 6/15 at 12:01am.

The festival packs houses over three days, showcases the kickass Twin Cities comedy scene, and connects comics from across the country. All happening October 18-20.

We started back in 2010 with a zero dollar budget and a ragtag collection of producers, comics, and audiences. Fast forward to 2017: the 10,000 Laughs festival drew 1500 attendees to 6 venues with 65 comics. And 2018 will only get bigger.

Come join us in the land of 10,000 lakes (hence the name…get it? Get it?) and perform on a bunch of super fun shows, with a bunch of super fun comics, in a super fun city.

We’ve got two submission tiers: LOCAL (people living and performing standup in the Twin Cities) and NATIONAL. Local submission fees are always free, and national submission fees are $25 until June 15th and $35 until July 15th. So get in on it early to save yourself some change.
