Submit! Submit! Do It!: 5th Annual Ladies Are Funny Festival in Austin, TX! Submissions Close Tuesday, Feb. 15!
by WomenInComedy - 0

That's right — we may be gearing up for the 3rd Annual Women in Comedy Festival next month up here in Boston, but the ladies down in Austin have been doing it for FIVE WHOLE YEARS now!

That. Is. So. Much. Female. Friendly. Comedy. Y'all.

We here at WICF, taking time from our busy schedule of warming our hands over the fire of patriarchy-propping burning manuscripts and attending all those god-fearing-marriage-destroying lesbian weddings that fill our calendars here in the Commonwealth, wanted to make sure we support our sister comrades-in-bras (or, you know, comrades-flying-free, whatevs!). And to that end, we say:

SUBMIT! SUBMIT! WHY HAVE YOU NOT SUBMITTED YOUR SHOW PROPOSAL TO THIS YEAR'S LADIES ARE FUNNY FESTIVAL?!

Yes, that is Selena Coppock — you know her, you love her!
Yes, we did steal this image straight from the 
LAFF site, why do you ask?

Seriously, the 5th Annual LAFF will be held this year in Austin, May 5th–7th, at the Salvage Vanguard Theater. And if you know where the good comedy is, you will be there. Submissions are open through this Tuesday, February 15th, so get on that! It only costs $15 to submit! YOU should be there!


Need some more info? Well good, because here it is!
LAFF celebrates women in comedy and welcomes all acts that explore women and gender issues. You need not be an exclusively female act to be considered. LAFF was conceived in 2007 by members of Austin ladyprov troupe Girls Girls Girls. In addition to lady-centered sketch, improv, stand up, one-woman shows, music, and dance, this is the first year LAFF will be accepting short film submissions. Plenty of WICF performers are LAFF performers, too! Like Selena Coppock, Skinny Bitch Jesus Meeting, and Sara Benincasa! If they're there, SHOULDN'T YOU BE, TOO?!

Plus, Austin is AWESOME.
