FESTIVAL INFORMATION

HARLEM COMEDY FESTIVAL
SEPTEMBER 23-SEPTEMBER 30, 2018
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.

RULES:

  • Videos should be no more than 6 minutes and can be a 'best of set'. HICF is looking for the next generation of standup comedians. Resort stay for the comedians is not covered nor is ground transportation. Must be 100% self-sufficient. 1st place winner $100. 2nd place winner $50. 3rd place winner $25
  • Not everyone who submits gets chosen. Submissions are non-refundable, so make sure you're eligible before you submit.
  • In the "video" field, do not use the "embed" code - use the URL for the video.
  • Early submission deadline ($15) is 7/1/18. Submission deadline ($20) is 8/1/18. Late submission deadline ($25) is 8/25/18 so get yours in now! Selections will be announced on or before 9/3/18.
