I have learned so much at all of the classes & panels, especially the marketing and producing sessions. I have also met so many wonderful new people and had so much fun performing in such awesome shows!

I was approached after my second show. A manager expressed interest and asked me questions about my experience and my interests in comedy. It was very positive and I would not have had the opportunity without the festival. – Patrick Ramirez- Comedian

What an amazing festival of new, undiscovered talent! I picked up a new client from this festival, and can’t wait to go again next year. Every show was fantastic. I felt like any one of the comedians I saw could be on late night tv right now. Can’t wait for next year!
