ATTENTION IMPROV AND SKETCH PERFORMERS


‐‐ ON JUNE 25TH AND JUNE 26TH THE FRIARS CLUB COMEDY FILM FESTIVAL WILL GIVE AWAY $20,000!





Why? Our mission is to foster the next generation of comedy filmmakers, and we believe that you, the improv and sketch communities, are essential to making that happen. We'll give one winning sketch and one winning improv team $10,000 each to make a short film that we hope you can use to launch your career to the next level. All improv and sketch troupes worldwide are eligible to enter the competition, and we want you to submit!


Here's how it works‐ to enter, your team must submit a demo of your show to the Friars Club postmarked by May 1st. The Friars Club Comedy Film Festival will pick the best 5 improv and the best 5 sketch submissions to compete on June 25th and June 26th at a live showdown at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York City. Each winning team will have 3 months to make a short film, which will premiere in September at the 2010 Friars Club Comedy Film Festival. With the depth of talent in the sketch and improv communities today, we're certain the next comedy film legends are out there waiting to be discovered, and we're proud to play a small role in helping their careers along.


So, submit early and submit often! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at FrISC@FriarsClub.com. And we hope to see you all this Fall at the Friars Club Comedy Film Festival (September 23‐26, 2010).


See you in June!
