New Comedy Festivals Stand-Up Comics Wanted

The She-Devil Comedy Festival will be taking place October 24-28 in Long Island City and Manhattan. The festival seeks to honor and reward the artists that most personify The Art of Comedy, while celebrating and helping further the long tradition of women in comedy.

The She-Devil Festival is combination competition/celebrity headliner event centered at the Laughing Devil in Long Island City with additional shows at Broadway Comedy Club, Gotham Comedy Club, and more. Created by the same people behind Laughing Skull and Laughing Devil festivals, the festival will also feature a private roof party, an art gallery party, museum tours, industry panels, and more events to be announced. The festival will be raising money for FORCE, a charity that educates women about cancer.

The winner gets at least $2000 (the prize package is growing as sponsors are added) and paid work from various clubs - and the judges are all decision makers in the industry. The audiences will be filled with agents, managers, bookers, casting directors and more. At the Laughing Devil festival, all three Letterman bookers attended the finals. More than three dozen bookers and agents have already agreed to participate.

The festival is another step in the Laughing Devil putting Queens on the comedy map. Regulars at the club already include Judah Friedlander, Todd Barry, Ted Alexandro and more. Last week, the Daily Show's Kristen Schaal made her first appearance to a sold out crowd. The Laughing Devil Festival (held last month) sold out every show.

We are looking for a wide range of comedians to participate in the 2012 Ventura Comedy Festival. Comedians will be compensated with valuable exposure, an opportunity to perform among comedy legends, and a wonderful chance to network!
Comedians have the chance to enter Ventura’s Funniest Person Comedy Competition during the festival. Preliminary rounds are the first four Sundays in September at the Ventura Harbor Comedy Club, 7pm. Judges choose comedians from each preliminary round to send a total of 36 people to the three semi-final rounds held during the festival. Judges will choose the three best comedians from each of semi-final contests and one judge’s pick (ten total) to send to the Sunday final contest. Ventura’s Funniest Person will receive a cash prize, and comedy bookings at the Ventura Harbor Comedy Club, J.R.’s Comedy Club, and Headliners Comedy Club at Fiamme in Thousand Oaks.
