Hello and Happy New Year!

Submissions for 2018 edition of The Highlarious Comedy Festival has begun!

This year the festival will take place April 12-14th, 2018 in Seattle’s Greenwood neighborhood with the main venue being Naked City Brewery and Tap House, a 75 seat room with audio and video capabilities.

A second venue will be announced along with the list of performers on Monday, February 5th 2018.

Submissions close February 1st at 12:01am PST

I’m proud to say we will continue our history of inclusion with showcases for minority, female and LGBTQIA+ comedians.

We will also be featuring flagship shows such as:

Nerds Who Smoke – Dungeons, Dragons and Dank
Bong Water – Dirty Jokes
Comics Sans Pants – 100% Great Comedians, 0% pants.
Lit Up – Roast Battle

We will also be introducing a few new shows that have yet to be named but are sure to entertain.

The submission fee is $15 and if excepted into the festival you will be guaranteed to receive the following:

Professional Audio
Professional Video (with THC Fest Watermark)
Dinner before each night of shows
Festival swag (including marijuana)
Comps for friends/family
Q and A’s with Bookers, Touring Comedians and Producers
Nightly private after parties exclusively for festival performers
Discounted Hotel Rates

This year, we’re also getting rid of individual show tickets. Passes will be for the entire day and will give attendees access to all shows at all venues for the date of their passes.

2018 is shaping up to be the best festival yet and I can’t wait to share more news!
