This new show pairs audience participation with standup comedy. An audience member selects a prop or outfit and the comedians have to tailor their set to incorporate it. If the comic can not do it they have to spend time in the dog house.

Don't Be Afraid of the Shorts: Comedy Shorts

  • Studio On The Square

What became the Don’t Be Afraid of the Shorts Showcase started in 2012, the same year as the Memphis Comedy Festival. Eric and Josh wanted to exhibit some video work so they hosted a screening at the P&H Cafe. (Oh and Josh proposed to his wife there as well) They did it again the next year and invited other local filmmakers to submit their work. In the third year it became a part of the Memphis Comedy Festival and has been ever since. Now in its fifth year, the showcase has joinedWithoutabox.com, allowing for international submissions, and garnered the support of the Indie Memphis Film Festival to help get the word out.
