It’s always rough when you submit to perform in a festival and are subsequently rejected. Many times it has nothing to do with the quality of your performance so much as the size, location or performer crossover that makes up your ensemble. Festival producers are always faced with making really difficult decisions (unfortunately I know this first hand quite) because they often don’t have enough slots for a lot of the great submissions they get.
If you’ve found yourself getting the short end of the roster recently, Chemically Imbalanced Comedy is stepping up once again this June with Snubfest ’09. The Chicago-based festival prides itself on presenting the best of those who’ve been snubbed. It doesn’t matter if your poison is improv, sketch, standup, musical comedy or even a solo act… if you’ve been shot down since June 1st of last year, then they’d like to hear from you by April 24th.
The event even boasts the Last Snob Standing contest where the winner(s) will score performance slot(s) in other major festivals.
