Laughing Skull Craft Beer Presents: The 8th Annual Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, brought to you by the W Midtown; coming to Atlanta May 1st - 8th, 2017

Every show features 12+ comedians, and no 2 shows are the same!

After viewing submissions from over 800 comedians from all across North America, we invited the best 72 to Atlanta to compete for the coveted first place prize; which includes $1000 cash, the crystal microphone trophy, future bookings, and the oddly prestigious title of Winner of the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival.

The 72 comedians will be judged on 3 preliminary rounds (Wednesday - Friday)

After their 3 sets, the top 18 will move on to one of two semi-finals shows Saturday at 8:00 (9 at the Buckhead Theatre and 9 at the Laughing Skull)

The top 4 from each of those shows will move on to the final competition at 10:30 at the Buckhead Theatre, where the winner will be decided.
