The Urban Laughs Comedy Festival is an event that celebrates all forms and aspects of urban comedy. It brings together the finest local, out of town and nationally known comics at one time to showcase their talents, network with one another, and enjoy the beautiful city of Memphis.
The festival takes place over 4 days in different venues over the city of Memphis. Each night will feature showcases with comics from our submission process while being hosted by local comics and headlined by comics known nationwide. The festival will also include informative classes, a day party mixer, and farewell brunch.
I'm raising funds to pay for hosts, headliners, and venues. I want to be able to give festival attendees a unforgettable experience. I think that the city of Memphis has a lot to offer tourists outside of the negative images that are sometimes portrayed of our city. This festival is important to me because its the first one of its kind here in Memphis.
