Every year, the Austin Sketch Comedy Festival brings together comedy types from all over the city, state, country, world, and astral plane.

We’re interested in seeing your scripted comedy shows — from sketch ensembles to one-person storytelling shows, weird conceptual game shows, premise based-stand-up shows, and everything in between.

You will be prompted to pay the submission fee ($20 for Early Bird Submissions / $25 for Regular Submissions) after you complete the form below. If you have any questions, you can email us at
