Submissions for the 2024 Funny Fiesta are open June 10th-July 1st. Click below to submit!

The 2024 Funny Fiesta will take place September 18th-22nd in beautiful Albuquerque, New Mexico!


Thanks, We got it!

  • Who can submit?
    If you're a stand-up comic, an improviser, or an artist working with humor in any performance medium, we'd love to hear from you. Previous Funny Fiestas have included comedic performances from drag queens, burlesque dancers, magicians, and more! Stand-up and improv are our main priorities, but we *love* showcasing variety acts, too. If you're a show producer who has a show you'd like to bring to the Albuquerque Funny Fiesta, we'd love to hear from you too! Typically, we're interested in show concepts where lots of comics and performing artists can participate rather than one-person shows. Some of the shows we've accepted in the past include Late, Late Breakfast (a stand-up show with funny challenges that happens over brunch) and Comedy Quick Change (a show where stand-up comedians and drag queens switch places).
  • What do I need in order to submit?
    If you're submitting as a single performer, you'll need the following to submit: -a current headshot -a bio with your relevant credits and experience (please mention if you're local!) -your best 5-minute tape (please make sure we can see and hear you, and that you're either telling jokes, doing improv, or showing us the best of whatever funny performance it is that you do!) -your completed submission form (we'll ask a few questions about demographics for grant purposes)
  • How much do submissions cost?
    Submissions cost $10 each. We do have some need-based scholarships available, and submitters with a little extra money on hand can also choose to throw a few extra bucks into that scholarship fund if they so choose. If you need a scholarship, please send us an email before submitting:
  • Do I have to submit to be considered for the Funny Fiesta?
    Yes. YOU MUST submit to the festival to be considered for inclusion this year.
  • Does the Funny Fiesta pay performers for this festival?
    Yes! One of the main ways the Funny Fiesta stands out is that we are brought to you by ArtsHub, a nonprofit that's dedicated to supporting the arts here in Albuquerque. All of our proceeds from ticket sales get paid out to the comedians who participate in the fest. After the festival ends, we divide our earnings by the total number of minutes performed, so your rate of pay will reflect the amount of stage time you had.
