You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers!
This festival sounds so cool! When is it again?
Like, right now! #PCF18 runs from Wednesday, August 22 through Sunday, August 26.
Where is it? (Other than Pittsburgh, duh.)
PCF is taking place in the Southside of Pittsburgh at two new locations this year, City Theatre and Club Cafe.
Are my tickets general admission, or are there assigned seats?
General admission all the way! Especially for headliner shows, be sure to get to the theater early to nab a great seat.
How do you decide the lineup?
PCF is a mix of national booked acts and acts we choose through juried submissions. The result is a hilarious sampling of the exciting things going on in comedy scenes large and small.
Awesome! Who chooses which submissions get in?
Submissions are juried by a small, anonymous panel of experts familiar with the artistic vision of the Pittsburgh Comedy Festival. We’re very thoughtful about who we put on the panel — we take care to find people with different backgrounds and points of view. Our panel consists of:
- PCF staff members and non-staff members
- Comedians and non-performing comedy fans
- Pittsburgh performers and out-of-town performers familiar with the Pittsburgh scene
