Michael Patten – 2014 $1000 Grand Prize Winner

The 5th Annual Sacramento Comedy Festival will be held October 2-10, 2015.  The Festival will feature Improv groups, Sketch shows and a Stand-up Competition. The Stand-up Competition has a$1000 Grand Prize.  We currently do not have a competition for Improv and Sketch but we would like you to join us and have an opportunity to perform at a Festival designed for and created by comedians.  We know how difficult it is to perform in other cities.  We will do whatever we can to keep your costs down and show you a good time while you are here! Sacramento has a thriving Comedy Scene which supports two traditional stand-up clubs, two improv and sketch venues, and countless small rooms that feature comedy 7 days a weeks across the city.  

Most of the Festivals events will take place in Downtown and Midtown Sacramento.  Midtown Sacramento is the epicenter of all things Arts and entertainment in Sacramento featuring hundreds of bars, restaurants, art galleries, and performance venues.  Downtown will soon be host to our new Arena.
