Motor City Comedy Festival 2020 Showcase Submission Form
Welcome to the submissions to the 2020 Motor City Comedy Festival!

Our festival will be taking place September 17-20, 2020 in and around Detroit, Michigan!

All comedians accepted for showcase performances will be given at least two showcase spots as well as other styles of shows if they choose to volunteer (roast battle, storytelling, etc.) as well as entry to workshops on topics important to working comedians and a variety of comedian exclusive events. Comedians selected for the festival each get a free festival shirt, free admission to all showcases, first access to tickets to headliners, entertainment and food. All comedians can also elect to lodge with local Detroit comics to save a little extra money.

Submissions will be judged predominantly on strength of 5 minute clip by a blind panel of 8 judges, five scores per clip, the highest scores will be invited to the festival. Clips longer than 5 minutes will likely not be viewed in their entirety.

Fees are February 2-March 10($20). Regular submissions will be open March 11-April 29($25). Late Submissions will be April 30-May 31($30).
