We are always happy to hear from acts, venues, promoters, agents, and other parties interested in working with us on the festival. We are particularly keen to support new talent from Belfast and work with local venues not normally associated with comedy. Unfortunately for overseas performers we are generally unable to cover travel costs. Open mic spots are generally reserved for local talent and we have a long waiting list.
The festival traditionally takes place each year during the last week of September and first week of October and we only begin working on the next festival around Easter, and hope to confirm the bulk of our programme by July.
We organise a wide range of comedy related events – not just stand up – so if you have a proposal for performances involving spoken word, poetry, cartoons, film, visual art, street theatre, seminars, workshops, book signings, etc please contact us around April time.
