STEP 3 – Go to the MY SHOWS page, press the ADD A SHOW button and complete as much of the information you can. The more information you can supply the better. You may edit the information for each show as often as you wish until applications close on 13 November 2016. Remember to press SAVE.
STEP 4 – After applications close, we will assess each application and successful applicants will be offered a venue, date/s and time/s for their show. Please note:
1. We receive far more applications than we can accommodate. If your application is unsuccessful, we will happily offer feedback and advice on how to strengthen future applications.
2. We aim to complete the curation of the Festival as quickly as possible. However, due to the nature of curating a large festival, some applicants may not receive a decision until January 2017.
STEP 5 – Once a successful applicant accepts the venue, date/s and time/s offered they become a Festival PARTICIPANT and are given access to the online registration forms where they will need to supply more detailed information about their show (eg: final show description, images, ticket prices, comprehensive technical information, etc).
What type of performers/shows can apply?
Anyone can apply. The Perth Comedy Festival strives to present comedic performances of all types. In short, if it’s funny, we want to see it.
Is there an age limit to apply?
No there isn’t, however many venues are licensed and cannot permit under 18s on the premises unless they are accompanies by a legal guardian.
Does it cost to apply for the Festival?
No. You may complete an application for one or more shows at no cost.
Does it cost to register for the Festival?

INFORMATION FOR INTERNATIONAL PERFORMERS
Can international performers apply?
Yes. However, all international performers need an appropriate work visa. For international performers without residency, you will need an Australian promoter to sponsor you for an entertainment visa.
What if I don’t have an Australian promoter to sponsor me?
Please indicate this in the “Is there anything else you would like to tell us about your show?” question in the online application form. Once applications close, we will forward your details to Australian promoters and ask them to contact you directly if they are interested in producing your show.
