You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers!
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
