College Comedy Fest and Beanpot Tournament

The 15th Annual College Comedy Festival

Festival Dates: February 22-24, 2019


The 15th annual College Comedy Festival and Beanpot Tournament unites the top collegiate comedians in New England for three days of nonstop laughs at ImprovBoston. Part-competition, part-educational and all fun, this festival has been a staple since 2005, giving college students the tools and opportunity they need to push their comedy to the next level. Each college team takes the stage for three performances over three days, networks with other schools, explores all forms of improv, takes workshops with acclaimed ImprovBoston instructors and a attends panel discussions with industry-leading comedians, offering students a unique, invaluable weekend for performer and audience member alike.

This year, we are also excited to announce a new Stand Up competition in association with the College Comedy Festival. Registrants will spend the weekend in workshops with some of New England's best comedians to further hone their craft, while competing for the title of CCF Stand Up Champion!
