Your Cheap Comedy Fest Submission is for two things:
- The Video Submission
- The Comedy Tournament
This means everybody gets two chances to be a part of the final night of Cheap Comedy Fest.
The Video Submission
Send us a 3-5 minute stand-up (or Zoom stand-up) video hosted on YouTube, Google Drive, or Vimeo.
A panel of judges will pick four comics to perform on the final night and possibly become champion of the first-ever Cheap Comedy Fest, winning both immeasurable glory and at least $20.
The Comedy Tournament
With your submission to Cheap Comedy Fest, you are also entered into The Cheap Comedy Fest Tournament, a bracket tournament to decide the other four comics performing on the final night.
These four comics will go head-to-head against the four comics who won the video submission contest to decide who will be the first champion of Cheap Comedy Fest, winning both immeasurable glory and at least $20.
The initially proposed purpose of Cheap Comedy Fest is to use as much as the submission money as possible to benefit the comedians. This is why we’d like you to submit the following to be featured in our advertisement for Cheap Comedy Fest:
- A headshot
- A sentence or quote to go with your headshot
- A YouTube or Vimeo video to embed. (This can be your submission or even a skit.)
- Your website, Instagram, and/or Twitter handle
You are not required to do this to participate, but the option is there if you’d like the opportunity to benefit from paid promotion.
We’d also like your permission to use your videos to chop up as part of a sizzle reel ad for the festival.
