Hey there potential 2019 performer! We’ve got one hell of a festival in store this year, and we’re pumped to see if you end up being a part of it. This free submission is for comics that live and perform actively in the Twin Cities ONLY. If you don’t live in the Twin Cities, don’t submit, use the paid submissions.
For the 2019 festival; If you were selected to perform last year, we won’t be considering you this year. We’re trying to cultivate a fun, exciting, and NEW festival every year, not the same one over and over again. We love all the comics that were on in years past, but we want to rotate in people from the local scene often.
You don’t get lodging. You live here. We’re sorry if you take this the wrong way but please go home.
Some locals will get more than one show, some will only get one. We get this isn’t fair.
We really love it when locals help us get comics to and from venues - the week of the fest. We’ll have some volunteers, but if you want some extra brownie points offer up some of that sweet sweet transport(giving rides to/from the airport for some of our bigger name comics, and helping get the other comics to/from venues).
Selection notifications go out 7/15, with rejections the day after.
