Event Details

The Largest Comedy Festival in the Southern United States, produced by the DSI Comedy Theater in Carrboro, NC.

Our festival features comedy acts from all over North America performing in local Chapel HillCarrboro and Durham venues during January and February 2013.

Comedy King Maker

Comedy Kingmaker brings together comedy fans and creators to talk about the next great comedy projects that need a little seed money. Pitch your project for a shot at $500 from, Paperweight Magazine and DSI Comedy to make your idea a reality. Projects of all types, media and formats are eligible -- it just has to be new, original and funny!

Here's how it works:

On Saturday, February 16, 4PM - 530PM selected projects (we choose the most fun and diverse 15 projects) will pitch ideas to fellow NCCAF participants over free drinks at DSI Comedy Theater. Each competitor gets up to 4 minutes (but feel free to keep it shorter!) to explain your idea, what makes it exciting and how the project will use the cash. After every idea gets presented, the crowd votes on which idea is most deserving of Comedy Kingmaker funds, winner take all. Admission is free, and every person in the room gets a vote.


Whether it's a podcast, webseries, live show or puppet opera, Comedy Kingmaker wants to make it happen. Tell us about your project idea, and let CMDY, Paperweight, DSI Comedy Theater and NCCAF help get it off the ground!
