The number one stop for comedy scripts and comedy short films! L.A. Comedy Shorts Film Festival and Screenplay Competition is dedicated to getting you noticed. Getting you introduced to people who will hire you. Oh yeah, and we REALLY want you to have a good time!
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
In our first four years, we were voted one of the ''Top Ten Film Festivals in the U.S.'' by the Brooks Institute and twice voted "25 Festivals Worth the Fee" by Moviemaker magazine. Why? Because LACS is a one of a kind experience for comedy short films and comedy scripts. It's our top priority to get you seen by the right people and make sure you have an awesome experience!
Co-founded by Gary Anthony Williams (Boston Legal, Malcolm in the Middle), L.A. Comedy Shorts attracts heavyweights from the world of comedy. Major sponsors include Will Ferrell and Judd Apatow's website 'FunnyOrDie.com', Cartoon Network, Atom.com and "Atom TV" on Comedy Central, and Freemantle's Atomic Wedgie.
Celebrity participants have included Jane Lynch, Adam Carolla, Patrick Warburton, Mark Hamill, Dax Shepard, Bryan Cranston, Julie Bowen, Wayne Brady, Bobcat Goldthwait, Missi Pyle, Bob Odenkirk, Aisha Tyler, Dave Koechner and many more.
Enough with the name dropping. There are also four nights of great parties (like Beer Pong tournaments, Celebrity Karaoke, Grown A$$ Kid's party) and a tight-knit and friendly community vibe all weekend long.
We hook our winners up with valuable industry meetings. Winning scripts and films have been requested or reviewed by HBO, CAA, ICM, UTA, Gersh Agency, Disney, Benderspink and many others.
