The 7th Annual Laughing Skull Comedy Festival returned to Atlanta June 7-12, 2016. We are adding shows and comedians to make this year the biggest yet. We have 101 comedians coming to Atlanta to perform over 6 nights at over 35 shows around town. Yea, it is a LOT of comedy!
We have hundreds of professional comedians submit and they compete against one another for the Winner of The Laughing Skull Comedy Festival 2016. We have had numerous semi-finalists go on to great success like second place on 'America's Got Talent', several Conan appearances, and 20+ appearances on 'Last Comic Standing.'
This festival is for true comedy lovers because on every show you see 12 comedians doing their best 7 minutes for you. With a rotating cast of 101 comedians, each show is funnier than the last.
Thank you to last year’s sponsors:
Laughing Skull Beer, Number Juan Tequila, and The W Hotel Midtown.
Winners receive cash, prizes, and exposure to TV bookers, agents, managers, comedy clubs, and partner festivals. Hundreds will submit, but only one will win!
Comedian submissions is now closed. We will announce the selected comedians by December 31, 2014. Thanks for submitting and good luck!
