Second City Presents:
Los Angeles Diversity in Comedy Festival
3 Arts Stage,NBC Stage, and Nickelodeon Stage
The Second City’s fourth annual, 2020 Diversity in Comedy Festival, is a 4-day festival taking place on October 15, 16, 17, 18. LADCF will feature diverse performers in the realm of sketch, improv, stand-up, original pilots, and video shorts, through performances, reading, viewing, panels, and workshops. Locations for the 2020 festival are at The Second City Hollywood on the following sponsored stages, 3 Arts Stage, NBC Stage, and Nickelodeon Stage. 2020 is an exciting year for LADCF, as we’re introducing two new ways to participate with Original Pilots being chosen and read on stage, and 2-10min Comedy Shorts viewings, sponsored by The Second City’s Harold Ramis Film School! Who qualifies as “diverse”? We feel that diversity extends to any group of underrepresented cultural voices- this could be based on gender, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, etc. If you believe your comedic voice is underrepresented and reflects your unique background…apply! Over the next few months we will be adding information on our many workshops, guest panels and performers. Check back for current updates!

The Black Version
The audience suggests the title of popular film and a cast of all black comedy actors improvise the black version of it. Simple? Yes. Funny? Hells Yeah!!
QUEER WINDOW is celebration of QUEER community and culture. This comedic variety show features some of LA's top LGBTQ+ acts doing improv, drag, stand-up, music, dance, or whatever their little queer hearts can think of. This show is fun foreveryone! Twinks, twunks, bears, carebears, STRAIGHTS, allies, Bob Fosse, butch queens, THE Queen, etc… The only rule is that this is a safe space so no frowns, but we do encourage the wearing of GOWNS. So throw open the curtains and experience the extravaganza that is QUEER WINDOW!!
