So you have more questions about submitting to perform at the Cape Fear Comedy Festival? Awesome, but before sending us an email. Check this Q&A below that could answer your question.
Q: Is my submission fee refundable if I do not get accepted?
A: No. The reason we have a submission fee is to reduce the amount of submissions we get from hobbyist comedians not serious about the craft and/or ready to submit.
Q: When will I find out if I have been accepted to perform?
A: March 1st, 2014 at 9am EST via email.
Q: How many comics are going to be accepted to perform?
A between 40-60.
Q: Are comedians paid to perform?
A: Only the headlining comedians are paid to perform.
Q: What do I get out of performing at the Cape Fear Comedy Festival.
A: Lifetime friends from all over the country in comedy. A week that amounts to many past participants as a comedy vacation. High quality performance photos shot by our professional photographer. And of course, a credit to include in your bio.
Q: What happens to all the money you accept in submissions?
A: The money that goes into submissions goes to help us break even on producing this festival. Much goes into paying the headliners, paying for advertising and covering operational expenses for the festival such as our hospitality spread at the shows and shuttle service.
Q: Who are the headliners for this years event.
A: We typically announce the headliners for our festival as the deadline for the festival approaches. This is not a hard and fast rule.
