How long should our submission video be?

4-6 can submit longer but our selection team won't watch past 6 mins. 

Can I submit more than one video?

Absolutely! We will only consider the one that you instruct us to. However, you will be asked to pay the submission fee for each video


Do I need to be over the age of 18?

While we love the young comics out there, our venues are required for you to be over the age of 18.


Can my representation submit for me?

Of course, and really they should be doing that for you, right?


How are selections done?

We have a committee that watches every single submission, every single minute. They each have a scoring system and from there the committee makes their decisions based on scoring.

How many Comedians will be selected?

24 Comedians will be selected this year


Do you pay for everything at this festival?

Pretty close. BSCF will cover your hotel and meals and of course a couple of drinks. We suggest you bring some fun money for bar tabs, awesome Montana Souvenirs, and tipping those lovely cocktail waitresses and bartenders


Does it need to be PG-13 material?

While we don’t say it has to be PG-13 we suggest a set that would work for television as that is a large part of our industry. But we also want you to be yourself. So if you’re dirty, be dirty.

Do selected Comedians get Paid?

Yes, every Comedian performing at BSCF will be paid


How are the teams chosen?

This is the coolest part of our festival. We have Team Auggie and Team Seely. They will have a draft night where each of them picks their people. Auggie and Seely are competitive so it’s a great draft
