10:30 Show Submissions

The Comedy Spot reserves the 10:30pm time slot on Friday and Saturday nights for comedians interested in creating and producing their own shows. To have your show performed at the Comedy Spot, please continue to read the important information on this page, and submit your idea below. A member of our Development Team will contact you to discuss and schedule your show. The Comedy Spot is committed to providing support, feedback, and training to performers, producers, coaches, and directors. A show at 10:30pm is your time to experiment and learn. 

Important – Please Read

Have fun! Be creative; do that show you have always wanted to do! It’s the wild west—your time to experiment. 

  • Each 10:30pm show should have a distinct voice and focus.
  • Show length is 30 minutes or less.
  • Producers and performers are NOT paid for 10:30 shows.
  • If a show demonstrates consistent quality and popularity, the Comedy Spot will negotiate pay with the producer.
  • Tickets are sold online and at the door. Tickets are $5 or FREE with a ticket to the 9pm show.
  • Always be safe on stage. Do not do anything outside your physical abilities. Avoid lifting other cast members or standing on chairs.
  • If you invite an audience member to participate on stage, take care of them. Help them on and off stage, make sure the stage is clear of hazards, and make sure they have plenty of light when they return to their seats. Never put audience members in a situation where they could be injured.
  • Do not use anything, including water, fire, props, or costumes, that may bring harm to yourself, another cast member, or audience member.
  • Real knives, guns, or swords are NEVER permitted on stage.
  • Do not use anything, including water, fire, props, food, or costumes, that may damage the stage or stage walls. Anything that might make a mess must be pre-approved and have a plan for containment and clean-up.

Support

The development team is committed to giving you support before, during, and after your performance. Communicate with us. Ask questions. Let us know what we can do to support you and your show. Even if you only have a nugget of an idea, don’t be afraid to contact a development team member to help you expand the idea to work on stage.

Promote

The producer and cast members should be able to easily describe or “sell” the show in one sentence. Promote your show through social media, posters, and flyers. Personally invite friends, family, and co-workers. Create a Facebook event for your show that can be shared and promoted. Tag your cast members in the event description to increase its views.

Sound and Light Tech

The Comedy Spot will supply a sound and light tech for each 10:30pm show. The tech will supply basic light and sound support: intro announcement, intro music, bring up stage lights, outro music, bring down stage lights. If your show requires lights and sound beyond these basics, please contact Evan Widjaja, Tech Coordinator, to see if he can find you a dedicated tech for your show.

Post-Production Notes and Feedback

At the conclusion of your show, a member of the development team will give you notes and feedback on your show. This team member can also make a recommendation to schedule the show again in the future. Always try to improve your show. After each show ask yourself, “What was positive about the show? What can we work on for next time?”
