The 6th annual Burbank Comedy Festival returns to the area this August for a week full of laughs!
There aren’t that many comedy festivals in Burbank each and every year. But when August rolls around on the calendar, the “Media Capital of the World” shines a big fat spotlight on the hottest new talent in comedy. Now in its sixth year, the Burbank Comedy Festival promises to be a week full of laughs, shining that light on over 200 of the hottest comedians from across the globe. Headquartered at the Flappers Comedy Club Burbank, the festival runs from Sunday, August 11 to Saturday, August, 17 2019 and includes a variety of events from shows, workshops, and panel discussions.
What to Expect. The highlights of the Burbank Comedy Festival are the shows that take place throughout the week at Flappers Comedy Club. Passes are available offering access to all of the events, but tickets for many of the marquee shows can be purchased individually as well. The full schedule of events includes standup performances, panels, podcasts, workshops, and a variety of smaller after party festivities.
Discover the New Kings and Queens of Comedy. This year kicks off with a ‘Grand Opening with Hal Sparks’ on Sunday, August 11. What follows will be over 100 events showcasing some household names, some breakout up-and-comers, and many ‘unknowns’ who are ready for their chance to steal some of the spotlight and a few laughs in the process. Some events will focus on a specific aspect of the comedy field from voice-over work to stand-up to the not so funny sides of the business like marketing yourself and gaining an audience. A few of the can’t-miss events this year are the We Talk Funny panel event with some of your favorite cartoon voice actors (Monday, August 12) and the ever-popular Wittiest Women All-Female Showcase (Tuesday, August 13).
