Keep it short 2-4 minutes, lots of shots of your audience enjoying your show. Prove you can hold a crowd and that your show is unique. Don’t include your hat line.

Ideally use testimonials from other festivals that loved you, include the full letters.

Bio & Description of the show:

Your history, how long you’ve been performing and what makes you unique. Describe your full show including finally.

What to send:

There are a lot of ways to get your information out. What to use? DVD mail outs, digital downloads, a page on your website or flash drives.

Make sure to call rather than just email the festivals you are interested in.
