HARLEM COMEDY FESTIVAL
NEW YORK, NY
COMPETITION
Unlike a majority of comedy festivals the Harlem comedy festival falls into two categories both competition and showcase. While most competitions are single elimination tournaments where one comedian moves on each round and at most performs twice. The Harlem Comedy festival will have fifteen competitors perform at least three times. We do this by having three rounds of five comedians doing six minute sets each and the other ten comedians doing rapid fire two minute sets each. The three winners of those respective competitions will perform a fourth time. The second place winner of that competition will win a fifth performance as host of the Improv showcase on the closing night of the festival. The first place winner will win a fifth performance as the feature of the best of the fest show. All three winners get a cash prize.

October 3-October 7, 2018
