About Charm City Comedy Festival 2020

BALTIMORE, Maryland – January 1st, 2020 – In our seventh year, the Charm City Comedy Festival opened our submissions even earlier to allow for more diverse lineups. As a women-owned business, we’re still booking mostly female identifying headliners. And, as usual, #CCCFest2020 will host over 100 acts over 10 days and two weeks - dedicating the first week to improv and sketch, and the second to standup comedy.

The Charm City Comedy Festival, Baltimore’s only festival for improv, sketch, standup, and musical comedy, will take over Hampden main street - AKA The Avenue - from April 29th-May 3rd and May 6th-10th, 2020. Over two long weekends, we'll showcase headliners from prominent comedy institutions, including Washington Improv Theater.

Events will include shows on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights on both weekends at the Charm City Comedy Project in Hampden. Our venue is the Lou Costello Room, otherwise known as the upstairs bar at Zissimos Bar, 1023 W 36th St, Baltimore, MD 21211.

Improv, sketch, and standup workshops will be held on Saturday, May 2nd and Saturday, May 9th at Zissimos Bar. Our instructors, highly respected minds with formidable talent, will come from all over the East coast to provide training for various levels and styles of performers.
