Come out and be a part of the Very First Queen City Comedy Festival!
What is the Queen City Comedy Festival? It is exactly what it sounds like, a 3 day festival for some of the local comedic talent of Charlotte to showcase their skills. Whether you prefer improv, sketch, or stand-up it will all be featured at this festival. This event is hosted by Queen City Comedy, a non-profit organization hell-bent on making Charlotte the funniest city in America and Acting Out Studio, a cutting edge acting studio in Charlotte, North Carolina, established by Los Angeles actress Kamber Hejlik in 2009.
Where is the Queen City Comedy Festival being held? The whole festival takes place at Acting Out Studios, located at 8145 Ardrey Kell Rd, Charlotte, North Carolina 28277. Ticketing information can be found here: Queen City Comedy.
When is the Queen City Comedy Festival? January 27th-29th.
I bet most of you didn’t even know that Charlotte had a comedy scene, let alone one large enough to host its own festival. With over 25 confirmed acts, we’re out to prove you wrong. With a stage both upstairs and downstairs, there will be two shows going on at once both Friday and Saturday night. That’s a lot of comedy.
Already confirmed to perform are some of Charlotte’s longest running comedy troupes like Charlotte Comedy Theater, Now Are The Foxes, Improv Charlotte, and Robot Johnson. That’s not even including some of Charlotte’s funniest stand-up comedians who will also perform that weekend. Psssst! I’m one of them. Seriously, when will you ever get to see this much comedy under one roof? NEVER! So make it a point to attend this festival.
Has anyone ever told you you were funny? Do you think you have what it takes to be a comedian? The Queen City Comedy Festival is a great place to start. There will be workshops both Saturday and Sunday during the day and these workshops are taught by some of Charlotte’s best instructors. You’ll have your pick of Improv for Kids, Improv 101, Sketch Writing, Musical Improv, and more once you sign up.
This will be a ground breaking weekend for the Charlotte Comedy Scene and Charlotte Community Radio is proud to be a media partner of this festival. Look for a few of our show hosts who will be there volunteering and/or mcing one of the shows.
