What to expect


As an audience member…

We’re bringing stand-up comics from across the nation (and Canada!) for a four-day, laughter-filled weekend, but we need you to make it a success!

 

Two stages are better than one!

Our festival utilizes a unique, multi-venue system to bring you as many shows as we can in four days. Typically, showcases are held at TheatreWorks and themeshows are held at the Hi-Tone Cafe. Multiple spaces and formats give you more ways to enjoy the best the U.S. has to offer right here in Memphis.

As a performer...

Our festival guarantees to make you feel like part of the dysfunctional family we came from! For 4 days we will bring Memphis to you and you to Memphis!

More than a Festival

One thing we do in the South right is take care of our people. When performing with our festival we will help cordinate tours of our Museums, Breweries, and more all while keeping your green room stocked with anything you could imagine!

Home Sweet Home

When you're staying with us the goal is to make sure you feel right at home. From finding acomidations to making sure you've got a meal to eat. You'll get classics like Jack Purtle's Chiken which is always on the menu and ready to please!

But Wait There's More

Our festival garintee's that you will get on stage at least twice, with the possibility to tack on 2 more informal performances. Between getting your feet wet at the Thurs Night Open Mic and the Brunch Show Send Off you'll get in more than a few laughs for sure!

 

Don't take our word, see for yourself.
