She-Devil Comedy Festival

Friday, May 31st, 2013

June 1st is the last day to get the early registration price for the She-Devil Comedy Festival. The fest seeks to honor and reward the artists that most personify The Art of Comedy, while celebrating and helping further the long tradition of women in comedy.
Created by the same people behind Laughing Skull and Laughing Devil festivals, the She-Devil Festival is combination competition/celebrity headliner event centered at the Laughing Devil with additional shows at other clubs around NYC (last year featured Gotham and Broadway, among others). The festival will also feature a private roof party, industry panels, and more events TBA.

The winner gets $2,000 and paid work from various clubs – and the judges are all decision makers in the industry. The audiences will be filled with agents, managers, bookers, casting directors and more. At our last festival, all three Letterman bookers attended the finals.

Get more information (and register!) at Registration is only $25 if you register by June 1.
