Event Details

Brooklyn Comedy Festival FAQ

Q.  What are the dates for Brooklyn Comedy Festival 2014?
A.  The dates for the 2014 festival are August 18th through the 23rd.


Q.  What if I can’t be there for the entire run of the festival?
A.  If you are not available for all dates, please let is know your availably when you submit.


Q.  How many people who submit via this process will be chosen to perform?
A.  We cannot determine in advance how many people will be chosen to perform. It really
depends on the quality of submissions, so send us your best!

Q.  As an improv team, sketch group, duo, etc, does each member need to submit? Or is just one submission under one member okay?
A.  Your group only needs to submit under one member.  We don't want you to spend $80 if you have a group of eight people!


Q.  How long will be set be if I’m accepted?
A.  Approximately 7-12 minutes for standup. Sketch and improv sets will vary depending on the number of teams/venue time constraints/etc but will be appropriate for the type of comedy being performed.


Q.  When can I expect to hear back about my submission?
A.  We’ll emailed those we’ve chosen to perform before June 1st.


Q.  Will you let me know if I do NOT get accepted to perform at the festival?
A.  We will only contact those who we are accepting. If you do not hear from us by the
acceptance deadline, please assume you have not been accepted this year. If you have
paid gigs the weekend of Brooklyn Comedy Festival, please don’t turn them down on
our account. Also, don’t take a rejection to mean we don’t think you’re funny -- we just
might not have room.


Q.  Is there a competition associated with the festival?
A.  No, just six great days of comedy!


Q.  Will Brooklyn Comedy Festival pay for my travel and/or lodging expenses if I am
selected to perform?
A.  No, you must arrange for your own travel and lodging during the festival.


Q.  Is it okay for me to book paid gigs in the New York City area any time before, after, or
during the festival?
A.  Yes, of course!


Q.  What should my submission tape consist of?
A.  A great submission would consist of a 3-7 minute clip with clear audio and video of an
unedited chunk of standup comedy that showcases your strengths, and has a lot of
funny in the first few minutes, since that’s the first thing we see.
