The 6th Annual Laughing Skull Comedy Festival returns to Atlanta March 25th – March 29th, 2015.
We have 72 professional comedians competing against one another for the Winner of The Laughing Skull Comedy Festival 2015.
We had over 400 comedians submit to be in the festival and you get to see the top 72 of them. Even though this is a competition, the comedians have fun and seeing lots of other great comedians while being seen by people who can help them advance their career.
This is considered by many comedy industry folk to be the best festival to see up-and-coming comedians. We have had industry from Chelsea Lately, David Letterman, Jimmy Fallon, FOX, Comedy Central, IFC, and more. As several comedians have said, “I live in LA but I had to come to Atlanta to been seen by an LA agent.”
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!
