Solocom 2016

← Festivals at the PIT

Festival Pass: FREE!

The PIT, along with award-winning solo show artist Peter Michael Marino (Desperately Seeking the Exit, Late with Lance!), will present all new solo comedies from national and international solo performers. Last year's festival featured artists from across the country, London, Canada and Newfoundland – from traditional solo show artists to sketch, storytelling to stand up, physical comedy to musicians, multi-media to improv, and cabaret and clowning. SOLOCOM is a unique solo show festival that has launched over 150 new solo comedies that have gone on to longer runs, tours and festivals around the world.

SOLOCOM was created to provide solo artists with a platform to generate brand new comic material. Dozens of shows that made their debut at SOLOCOM have gone on to tour the world and play at various festivals including Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Hollywood Fringe, NC Comedy Arts Festival, San Francisco Fringe, Adelaide Fringe, and Orlando Fringe.

SOLOCOM 2016 is November 18-20 at the Peoples Improv Theater. Applications for SOLOCOM 2016 will open in August.
