The Green  Gravel Comedy fest will be a weekend of curated comedy madness running from February 27-28, 2015. Boasting live stand-up, improv, podcast and sketch material, Iowa City will be bustling with fans and creators alike. We look forward to facilitating a platform for comedy creators to share their work while networking, partying and influencing each other in ways previously unimaginable!

There are a number of venues that showcase comedy in Iowa – from bars to comedy clubs to talent shows. Our goal is to give a voice to the performers that have yearned to grace those stages as much as those who have been prominently featured there. We welcome diverse submissions in the realm of stand-up, podcasts and one-man-show comedy! This is your chance to showcase your very finest work! Nothing is too weird. This is your time. We’ll be particularly on the lookout for talent within the Hawkeye state.

Please send the following to

Name, City/State, Email, Synopsis (if a one-person show or podcast) Video Link, Website or Credits.

Submission Fees should be sent to the same email via PayPal. Submissions that are not accompanied by the submission fee will not be considered.

All submissions are due by midnight on Monday, January 5th. No submissions will be accepted after this time and any submission fees from late entrants will be returned.

*Note: We will be premiering an outreach program for Green Gravel performers to come out to LA to showcase work in front of industry professionals in 2015. Eligibility for this program will be available exclusively to performers who have been previously accepted to perform at Green Gravel functions.

GG 2015 is already slated to feature some of Iowa’s great indie/alt comedy shows/performers: JANICE, Little Village Comedy Hour, Paperback Rhino and more!  We can’t wait for you to join them and look forward to seeing your best stuff!
