Announcement: We’re taking a hiatus for summer 2019 while we explore partnership options that allow us to deliver an even better Pittsburgh Comedy Festival.

Stay tuned for updates

PCF is produced by a non-profit organization, Comedy Arts Pittsburgh (CAP). The CAP Board is incredibly proud of what PCF has been able to accomplish these past 5 years and its role in the exponential growth of the Pittsburgh comedy scene over that time. The board also recognizes that our values as an organization require us to better understand how to effectively manage an all-volunteer workforce, raise necessary funding, truly live up to our equity and inclusion mission, and continue to deliver the level of quality we are known for over in these next 5 years. We have been fortunate enough to begin talks with a few potential partners who could help us continue to build this vision. Since this is a volunteer after-hours labor of love, this level of organizational upheaval is going to disrupt our ability to put up the festival in 2019. We look forward to announcing more plans as they solidify, and are thankful to be part of a community where there will be no shortage of opportunities!

A huge thank you to everyone who helped build PCF what it is–our volunteers, performers, attendees, sponsors, community partners–thank you!

Thanks for a great 2018!
