We would like to invite you to join us for the 7th Annual Burbank CoVedy Festival – August 9th through 22nd (The First Ever Entirely Virtual International Comedy Festival) featuring shows, podcasts, and Q&As with Michael Rapaport, Rob Paulsen, Jackie Kashian, Jimmy Pardo, Laurie Kilmartin, Jimmy Dore, and more soon to be announced. Presented and Produced by Flappers Comedy Club & Restaurant, The festival will virtually host celebrity headliners and over 250 comedians from ALL OVER THE WORLD who were selected through a 12-month submission process, as well as partnered-showcases with international venues! The best part is you don’t have to spend time or money to fly across the globe to see comedians, they are all ready to make you laugh in your very own living room! A great (and safe) place to see world-class headliners and new and undiscovered comedians or to take that comedy class you’ve always wanted, the festival also offers workshops in stand-up performance, writing, and marketing. Past participants in the Burbank Comedy Festival have gained representation and have also gone on to participate in many major festivals, tv pilots/episodics, and more. Check out the Master Schedule for show dates and times.

RESTAURANTS & SPONSORED SHOWS:
We are doing something remarkable this year as well! We have teamed up with local struggling businesses and restaurants and offered them the ability to generate some additional revenue by sponsoring a show at no charge. As a sponsor, we put their logo on the show and brand it accordingly i.e. “Comedy Things & Hot Wings” Sponsored by Buffalo Wild Wings and we simply ask that they market and advertise that show to their own mailing lists, and in exchange we split the Ticket Sales with them 50/50. Also we are asking them for a discount or deal to offer up in our Virtual Gift Bags. So if you have a friend or family member with a business, that needs some financial assistance this could help a lot. Please help us spread the word. If you know someone that would like to get involved have them email BHolliday@FlappersComedy.com
AFTER PARTIES: We will be Offering virtual after Parties featuring a DJ and other Interactive Activities. Stay tuned for More Details but stay in your Living room and Party with us!:) .
VIRTUAL GIFT BAGS: We have a very exclusive list of Sponsors who are offering one of a kind coupons and deals through our Virtual Gift Bags!
