PCF pulls together line-ups that celebrate the breadth of styles and voices* in the stand-up community. Here’s what to keep in mind when submitting:
Sets approximately 10-15 minutes long.
We love stand-ups with fresh perspectives, original ideas, and who bring their unique personality to the stage.
As with all our programming, your set's content should respect the diversity of both our audience and performers, and be concurrent with the inclusive spirit of our festival.
