For Performers

What should you expect as a performer at ExAb Fest?

  • Lively and appreciative audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
  • The earlier Sunday shows are designed for younger audiences. We will check in with performers booked into those slots to make sure this is the right audience.
  • Saturday’s show and later Sunday shows are primarily for older kids, teens and adults. We don’t want you to dumb down your work or feel like you have to put on a “kids show.” Just get out there and share your talent with people who may not otherwise see live comedy.
  • Some Acts from previous ExAb Fests.

What do we need from you?

thanks for asking….

  • Arrive at the theater at least 30 minutes prior to the beginning of your show block.
  • Check in at the Performer’s Table. They will direct you to the Green Room, provide you with updated information, suggest warm up spots, etc.
  • The stage manager will let you know when it’s time head back stage and get ready to perform.
  • Really solid comedy performance that inspires and entertains.

Part of what makes this festival so great is the opportunity for young Improvisers to see quality live comedy AND spend time speaking with other youth and adult performers who’ve had different levels of experience.

So hang out! Introduce yourself to people. Come to the jams and the open mic. See shows! VOLUNTEER!
