The 7th Annual Laughing Skull Comedy Festival is June 7-12, 2016 in Atlanta, GA.

FYI... Every comedian accepted to the festival is seen by top industry that can help them advance their careers and get more work. The 2016 festival is going to have more industry than any other year. 

When our festival’s art director, Marshall Chiles, went to the 2015 Montreal Just For Laughs, he had TONS of industry saying they want to attend the 2015 Laughing Skull Comedy Festival because of the festival’s history of finding some of the best up-and-coming comedians in the country. We had 5 of our comedians in New Faces this year.
