Cloud Top Comedy Festival

September 13th from 2:00 – 6:00 PM , September 14th from 3:30 – 6:00 PM

 

September 13th at 2:00 PM, we’ll be hosting a FREE CloudTop Comedy Festival Panel Discussion, “Get Noticed: A Panel Discussion for Comedians”. Join noted talent scout Jeff Singer, comedy club owner David Rodriguez, and talent agent Michael Grinspan as well as Mat Alano-Martin for a panel discussion on what it takes to get noticed in the industry. This panel will be an hour of open Q&A and is open to both established and aspiring comedians!

 

Immediately following the panel discussion, there will be an Open Mic at 3:30 PM! Sign-ups start in the lobby at 3:00 PM – get there and get your slot! This is the perfect opportunity to try your hand at stand-up comedy in an intimate venue and if you’re already a comedian, perhaps try out new material in front of a receptive, encouraging audience.

 

Round out the two day festival with the very best New Mexico has to offer at CloudTop Comedy Festival’s Local Comics Showcase! This showcase takes place on Friday and Saturday, September 13 and 14 at 5:00 PM and is hosted by one of Santa Fe’s favorite comedians, Carlos Medina. We’ll have a different line-up each night, so check our website for more details! Tickets, the festival schedule, and everything CloudTop can be found at https://www.cloudtopcomedy.com
