store   Burbank Comedy Festival :: Burbank Comedy Festival Submission
Flappers Comedy Club & Restaurant presents the eighth annual Burbank Comedy Festival (August 8-21, 2021), two weeks of amazing comedy shows, industry showcases, podcasts, classes, networking events, industry panels and after-parties. We are accepting submissions for stand-up comedy, sketch/improv groups, comedic short films, variety acts, comedy magic, musical comedy acts, and more!

Submissions require a non-refundable $75.00 submission fee. Unfortunately, we can only accept a certain number of submissions. SUBMISSION DOES NOT GUARANTEE SELECTION.

COVID-19 UPDATE: The Festival is expected to consist of both live and virtual events in Burbank, Aug 8-21. This year, the festival will include a contest component with prelims, semi final and final rounds, and the winner shall receive $2500. More details coming soon. All of this is subject to change, based upon developing COVID closures/openings/you get the idea.

In the event that the quarantine is extended or re-implemented, we will convert to an all-virtual festival that takes place in our virtual comedy rooms. ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, there will be a festival with plenty of industry attendees; our aim is to connect talent from around the world with agents/managers/casting directors/etc - ain't no virus gonna get us down!
