How To Perform During NCCAF 2014

NCCAF Performer Registration Options and Fees

NCCAF 2014 will run Thursday, Feb. 6 through Sunday, Feb. 16. Submitted sketch acts and standup comics will be considered for the entire run. Local improv acts will be considered for the entire run. Improv acts from outside North Carolina will be considered for Feb. 11–15. NCCAF performance slots vary. Minimum 25 minutes for improv and sketch; standup sets range from 10-15 minutes. No feature acts are compensated for festival performances.

Once your act has submitted — and been accepted — to NCCAF, you will be asked to register your act (all members) as official festival participants. Participant registration begins October 22.
