History

The LA Comedy Festival started out as the LA Fest of Sketch, an all sketch comedy festival. After five years, we decided to add a Spring festival that would showcase comedy in all it’s forms, live performance, film, TV, web, screenwriting. After the 1st LA Comedy Festival was so embraced by LA comedy lovers and comedy talent, we decided to absorb our beloved sketch comedy festival and have the LA Comedy Festival become a biannual event.

We have been delighted with our growth which has allowed us the ability to support comedic voices from around the world. Every festival we receive hundreds of short film submissions and have been struck by the enormous amount of films we receive that don’t necessarily fit into the genre of comedy, but are nonetheless great films that deserve an audience. Our next goal is to offer these films, as well as, more great comedy shorts, a home. With this as our next step, we added our newest festival, the LA INDIE Film Festival. Submissions and details are available at LAIndieFilmFest.com.
