From April 6 through 9, the second installment of the Bird City Comedy Festival will bring comedians and comedy acts from around the country to stages throughout central Phoenix.
“Downtown Phoenix has a tight-knit arts community, so we felt that it would be a natural fit for a comedy festival with alternative comedy leanings,” Genevieve Rice, producer of the Bird City Comedy Festival said. “Plus, it’s an area with so many great venues close together, which makes it much easier for festival performers and attendees.”
The stages vary in intimacy, from Lawn Gnome Publishing, to Stand Up Live, to the Phoenix Center for the Arts and more. With so many different settings, there will be no shortage of laughter and humor heard throughout the streets of downtown Phoenix during this event.
“To submit, performers had to provide a video clip of their performance. This year, we received about 400 submissions in all categories,” Rice said. “It was a difficult decision because so many terrific performers applied, but we ultimately selected a diverse lineup of top-notch talent.”
